Professors Herring, Infanti, and Madison Report on Teaching Innovation at Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers' Conference
In the Fall of 2012, Professors Dave Herring, Tony Infanti, and Mike Madison attended Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers’ first conference, “The Development of Professional Identity in Legal Education: Rethinking Learning and Assessment,” as Pitt Law representatives, reporting on teaching innovation at Pitt Law and in their own classrooms. The conference sought collaboration among schools to identify best practices for forming professional identity, encouraged schools to share examples of programs and curricula that support professional development, and fostered new ideas and approaches that representatives could take back to their schools.
Pitt Law is pleased to be one of 27 law schools associated with this ground-breaking consortium. Madison, recently named an ETL fellow, has shared his coursework for those who wish to consider more innovative teaching approaches; it can be viewed here. Fellows of ETL are individuals who have distinguished themselves as leaders in legal education; who have incorporated into their own teaching the Carnegie apprenticeships and a commitment to producing more practice-ready and professional graduates; and who demonstrate a willingness to share their expertise and experiences with others.
