Professor Karin Mika Presents at Western Regional Legal Writing Conference

K_MIKA.jpgProfessor Karin Mika presented at the Western Regional Legal Writing Conference, held at UC Irvine Law School, on September 29-29.  The topic of her presentation was “Understanding One’s Privilege and Its Role in the Future of Legal Education.” In her presentation, Professor Mika discussed how legal educators need to acknowledge in their classrooms that some voices have been historically silenced in a classroom setting. Mika stated that legal educators need to make sure that they are taking the opportunity to validate those voices.

Professor Mika also had an essay accepted for an upcoming edition of the Journal of the Legal Writing Institute: Reflections on the 2018 Biennial Conference (the past, present, and future of Legal Writing).

Finally, Professor Mika was a brief grader for the 2018 Scribes Best Brief Competition.
