Professor of Legal Writing Jennifer Hill Participates in Legal Writing Conference

Jennifer Hill

Professor of Legal Writing and Lecturer in Law Jennifer Hill presented on "Community-Based Policy Research and Writing" at a conference at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The conference, "Bringing Outside In: Social Justice Collaborations in the Legal Writing Curriculum," was the first workshop devoted entirely to the growing movement to bring realistic and challenging social justice issues into legal writing classrooms, to develop collaborations between legal writing programs and law school clinics, and to strengthen policy research and writing instruction through partnerships with advocacy organizations. Professor Hill spoke at the conference about the gaps that exist because formal skills instruction in law schools often does not cover the nontraditional research and writing skills required for policy advocacy and because students may not gain exposure to policy analysis during internships due to restrictions on the time or scope of advocacy activities. Professor Hill is a member of Miami Law’s Legal Communication and Research Skills Program.
