Legal Education Symposium, 2009

Quinn School, UCD, via their site.The Third Annual Legal Education Symposium will be hosted by UCD School of Law in the Quinn School of Business, UCD (pictured left) from 9:30am on Friday 13 March 2009 (the two previous symposia have been blogged here and here).

The morning plenary session, on Teaching Experiences in Legal Education, will be chaired by UCD School of Law’s new Dean, Prof John Jackson, and the speakers will be Prof Avrom Sherr (Institute of Advanced Legal Studies), Dr Marie-Luce Paris-Dobozy (University College Dublin) and Ms Raphael King (McCann Fitzgerald).

The afternoon plenary session, on International and European Perspectives in Legal Education, will be chaired by Prof Blanaid Clarke (University College Dublin), and the speakers will be Dr Attracta Halpin (Registrar, National University of Ireland) and Prof Frans Vanistendael (Katholieje Universiteit Leuven).

Between the plenary sessions, there will be parallel sessions on Experiential Learning, Assessment Techniques & Feedback, Clinical Legal Education, Teaching Foreign Legal Systems and (the one I’m most looking forward to) Blogs, Podcasts, Social Networks, Wikis and other social media.

Kudos to Prof Blanaid Clarke and Dr Marie-Luce Paris-Dobozy for all their hard work in putting this exciting programme together. There is no conference fee, but you must make a booking to reserve a place. So, if you’re interested, please send an email for the booking form.

Me in a hatHi there! Thanks for dropping by. I'm Eoin O'Dell, and this is my blog: Cearta.ie - the Irish for rights.

"Cearta" really is the Irish word for rights, so the title provides a good sense of the scope of this blog.

In general, I write here about private law, free speech, and cyber law; and, in particular, I write about Irish law and education policy.

Blogroll (or, really, a non-blogroll)

What I'd like for here is a simple widget that takes the list of feeds from my existing RSS reader and displays it here as a blogroll. Nothing fancy. I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

I had built a blogroll here on my Google Reader RSS subscriptions. Google Reader produced a line of html for each RSS subscription category, each of which I pasted here. So I had a list of my subscriptions as my blogroll, organised by category, which updated whenever I edited Google Reader. Easy peasy. However, with the sad and unnecessary demise of that product, so also went this blogroll. Please take a moment to mourn Google Reader. If there's an RSS reader which provides a line of html for the list of subscriptions, or for each RSS subscription category as Google Reader did, I'd happily use that. So, as I've already begged, I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

Meanwhile, please bear with me until I find a new RSS+Blogroll solution
