Call for Proposals: Sixth Biennial Conference on Applied Legal Storytelling

American University’s Washington College of Law hosts the Sixth Biennial Conference on Applied Legal Storytelling from July 11-13, 2017.

Applied Legal Storytelling is defined broadly to allow people creativity in the way they think and present on the topic. Among the broadest categories are the uses of storytelling in law practice, legal education, and legal scholarship; the ways in which fiction-writing techniques or narrative theory can inform legal storytelling; stories in the law, or law as stories; legal storytelling and metaphor; legal storytelling and cognitive science; and ethical considerations in legal storytelling. If you are a lawyer and if you have ever read, watched, or told a story then you already know something about Applied Legal Storytelling.

The extension deadline for the proposal submissions is March 12, 2017.
