Welcome to the blog for the Consortium for Undergraduate Law and Justice Programs. We hope that this website, and the blog in particular, will be a place to think and talk about teaching and learning in undergraduate legal studies and justice studies programs – highlighting the diversity of what we do and who we are, and working to create a record of the innovative and useful strategies we employ in classrooms, experiential learning, and in our own research. Take a moment to click through the site – we have syllabi from a variety of classes, a growing list of program links, and what we hope will be a similarly growing list of announcements pertinent to our field (hiring? submit your position announcements for free at firstname.lastname@example.org)! Check out our Board of Directors page, and know that members of the Board are available for emails and phone calls as you develop courses, majors, and programs.
We also have a membership button on the site, if your institution is able to affiliate with CULJP. In a later blog post, we will go into a bit more detail about the perks of membership – until then, feel free to email me, @ email@example.com for details.
In the coming weeks, you can expect to see blog posts from faculty and graduate students affiliated with undergraduate law and justice programs across the United States. You will read posts from international scholars, too – and those of us in administrative roles at our institutions. And, you will have the chance to hear from undergrads in our programs. We’ve invited a wide range of contributors – you are invited, too! Please, use the comments section to share with your thoughts and engage in dialogue. And follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@CULJP) to receive notification of new posts.
Please consider submitting a blog post of your own: 300 – 700 words on teaching, learning, working, and being in the field of undergraduate law and justice studies. Discuss an assignment you use, a book you’ve read and assigned, or an in-class activity. Tell us how you bring your research into the classroom, or how you get your students out of the classroom. Share your perspective as a pre-law major, a recent graduate of a CULJP-type program, a graduate student hoping for a job.
Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org - we will send you a note when it goes live on the blog!
