Past Conference Programs

Contribute to Proceedings

Thank you for considering submitting a presentation essay to our online journal or a program to our conference program repository. 

Presentation Essays

We welcome submissions on any topic that has been presented at regional and national conferences that are focused on advancing the broad fields of legal writing and legal writing education. Please include the conference name, date, and location with your submission.

Online journal submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. Journal submissions are typically between 1500 and 2000 words and are typically due no later than 60 days after the close of the conference. Essays must reflect the author’s original work (not an excerpt of previously published work) and should be only lightly footnoted.

Submission Information

All submissions must be saved as Microsoft Word (doc, docx) files. 

Please email all submissions to Suzanne Rowe at  We reserve the right to reject submissions for any reason; those accepted will be lightly edited.

Subsequent Use

We hope that authors will later turn essays from Proceedings into scholarly articles. If you do, please include the following statement: "Ideas in this article originally appeared in Proceedings, published by the University of Oregon School of Law’s Legal Research and Writing Program.”  For anyone who would like to cite these essays, we suggest the volume and issue, followed by Proceedings and the date. For example, Eugene Kim, Rethinking Grading in Legal Writing Education, 3:1 Proceedings (2022).

Conference Programs

This site also acts as a repository for legal writing conference programs.  In many instances, the conference will have been sponsored by a national legal writing organization (e.g., ALWD or LWI) or a regional consortium (e.g., Rocky Mountain).  In some instances, the program may be an excerpt from a conference (like SEALS) or annual meeting (like AALS) that was aimed at legal writing faculty.  Conference programs may be submitted at any time.
