Langenfeld presents at legal writing conference
Clinical Professor of Law
recently gave a presentation at the Third Annual Western Regional Legal Writing Conference at Whittier Law School in Costa Mesa, Calif. The conference, Lead the Change, was held Aug. 9-10.
Langenfeld’s presentation, “Walter Matthau and Lawyering Ethics: Film Clips to Introduce the Lawyer’s Role as Advisor,” focused on images of the practice of law outside the courtroom. Participants discussed the risks and benefits of pop culture in the classroom, non-courtroom lawyering scenes in courtroom drama movies, and some potential lessons in TV lawyers, such as Saul Goodman on “Breaking Bad.”
Langenfeld’s research pursuits include the benefits of teaching effective oral communications skills for professional settings, and the application of theories on learning style and “flow state” to the design of skills-oriented law courses. She teaches Legal Method and Writing, Legal Research and Writing, Intensive Legal Writing and a seminar on Advanced Legal Writing.
