Regent Law Professor Janis Kirkland hosted the group with the assistance of Assistant Dean of Student Affairs Kimberly Van Essendelft and Regent Law Library Director Marie Summerlin Hamm. Professors Kirkland and Hamm presented a session entitled "Where the Rubric Meets the Road: Measuring Legal Analysis, Research, & Writing Competencies Across the Curriculum."
“This conference provided a great opportunity to share successful teaching approaches with other experts in the field,” said Professor Kirkland. “I think all participants left energized and equipped with new ideas to promote student success.”
