    Thanks so much to those of you who participated in our CLEA Strategic Planning Survey at the end of 2015. We received a number of responses. The data we collected was valuable; we used the information during our membership and board meetings in early January and will continue to analyze the data as we prepare for our CLEA board retreat at the end of April.

    The overall takeaways from the survey indicates that (1) there is strong consensus regarding the relevance and importance of CLEA's current mission statement, and of the organization's effectiveness in fulfilling the mission; and (2) the planning process provides an opportunity to enhance member engagement and organizational communication. You can view the results of the survey here

    We will continue to reach out to our terrific membership as we continue with the strategic planning process.

    The Legal Writing Institute (LWI) has asked that we circulate to CLEA membership LWI’s Statement of Best Practices regarding the 405(c) status positions. CLEA does not adopt this statement, but is circulating it to provide our membership with this information. We appreciate LWI as an ally.

    The schedule for the 2015 conference on Applied Legal Storytelling is out! You will see that we have not one, but two plenary sessions: on "Storytelling and Professional Formation" and on "Feminists Judgments and Storytelling."  Surrounding those two plenary sessions are 57 other discrete panels and presentations on applied legal storytelling, offered by 87 presenters.  Our presenters include colleagues from as far away as the United Kingdom and Hong Kong, and they will be talking about a fascinating variety of topics.  We invite you to come join us at the conference.

    The conference runs from Tuesday, July 21st, through Thursday, July 23rd, at Seattle University.  In keeping with conference tradition, the conference will close Thursday evening with a formal sit-down dinner--this time at the Rainier Club in downtown Seattle.  The conference fee includes continental breakfasts, salad buffet lunches, and the dinner at the Rainier Club.  You may find additional conference information, including information about housing, on the Legal Writing Institute's website or by clicking here:

    We invite you to join us at the 2015 Applied Legal Storytelling conference, the fifth time for this assemblage of engaging presentations and collegial conversations.  And fun.  Seattle in July is sunny and warm, but rarely too hot.  The city is filled with things to do and includes a vibrant restaurant scene.  The waters and mountains of the Pacific Northwest are beautiful and worth exploring before or after the conference.  See you in Seattle!
