Stetson University College of Law will host its annual Educating Advocacy Teachers (EATS) Conference June 14-16, 2021.

This year’s EATS conference will be virtual because of the COVID-19 risks; however, it will still feature the same dynamic and collaborative experience attendees have come to expect from the event, which Stetson Law has hosted for more than a decade.

The unique conference invites educators from around the country to share their experiences, while facilitating the exploration of new teaching techniques and technology in the specialized area of trial advocacy. This year’s conference is composed of various panels, workshops, and breakout sessions that promote small group discussion and interaction based on trending topics identified by the national trial advocacy community.

Sessions at this year’s conference will be led by a stellar lineup of advocacy experts from around the country and will include:

  • Integrating Advocacy Skills into the Doctrinal Curriculum
  • Moving Forward: Online v. In-Person Competitions
  • Identifying & Handling Race, Gender & Other Prejudices in Cases
  • Creative Exercises in Storytelling

EATS is also a celebration of achievement in advocacy teaching. Stetson will recognize the recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award for Excellence in Teaching Advocacy, the Edward D. Ohlbaum Professionalism Award, and the first annual Advocacy Writing Competition Award winner.
