If you would like some background on the first two Storytelling Conferences, here is a link to a bibliography of scholarship that has come out of the first two conferences:
Storytelling Reading Group
This year the Storytelling Conference includes a new feature — a Storytelling Reading Group. Immediately before the conference begins (Friday afternoon, from 1:00 – 3:00), anyone interested is invited to meet to discuss a classic article in the field of law and narrative — the 1984 UCLA article “Lay Lawyering” by Gerald Lopez. “Lay Lawyering” was part of the early move to narrative, especially in clinical scholarship, and its astute observations remain relevant to all of us today. The piece speaks to everything we do — our teaching, our scholarship, and our ways of being in the world. Read or re-read this piece and come join interested colleagues to talk about what Lopez has to say to us today. Discussion Leaders will be Ken Chestek and Linda Edwards. If you would like to attend the reading group, please RSVP directly to Ken Chestek.
