Interested in using technology to ease the pain of creating end-of-semester outlines? Want to share library resources with law students and professors in a completely new way? Looking for a way to finally illustrate a case in class through the use of technology? Or are you just plain curious about the intersection of legal information and technology? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should come to LATCamp!
LATCamp (Law and Technology Camp) is a one-day unconference hosted by the Harvard Law School on May 16. We welcome everyone who is involved with legal education throughout New England – students, professors, librarians, technologists. It promises to be an exciting day of lively discussions, brainstorming, and forming new ideas. See the About page for more information.
Applying to LATCamp couldn’t be easier! Just fill out the registration form with a little bit of information about yourself and why you want to come to LATCamp. Applications are due by April 18, 2011, and all participants will be notified by April 25 of their acceptance. Due to space constraints, we will be capping attendance at 75.
Once you’re accepted, you are encouraged to submit session proposals and to comment on others. Lively discussions before the day begins help to shape the discussion topics and to set the participatory tone for the day. You can also sign up for a Dork Short! Dork Shorts are 2-minute mini-presentations on projects you may be working on. They are presented before the whole group, and you can show off a web-based project, or just get up and talk, prop-free.
