Professor May Presents on Teaching Social Justice and Legal Change in Legal Writing

Senior Legal Writing Professor Claire C. Robinson May presented at the Legal Writing Institute’s One-Day Workshop on December 1, 2022. The workshop, hosted virtually by the Arizona State University Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, was entitled “Teaching Social Justice and Legal Change in Legal Writing.” In her presentation, “Law, Inequality, and Everyday Life: A New Course for Justice-Seeking Law Students,” Professor May discussed the inspiration for and pedagogical design of a new legal writing seminar she is offering for the first time in Spring 2023. In the course, law students will read a variety of scholarly and literary non-fiction texts that explore issues of inequality. Students may elect to take the course for either upper-level or third-semester Legal Writing credit, with writing assignments that culminate in either a scholarly research paper or legal practice portfolio.
