Other NIFTEP projects include the International Forum on Teaching Legal Ethics and Professionalism, a user-driven online community and resource library for ethics teachers, scholars, and practitioners worldwide.
The most recent NIFTEP workshop took place from 1:00 pm, Tuesday, July 8 until 11:00 am Thursday, July 10, 2014 in London, England, immediately preceding the 6th International Legal Ethics Conference (ILEC6), and was co-sponsored by Teaching Legal Ethics UK and and the American Bar Association Standing Committee on Professionalism. The workshop venue was the Gray’s Inn Campus of the City Law School.
Participants in this highly interactive workshop were selected as NIFTEP Fellows through an online application process. Total attendance at the London workshop, including Fellows and invited speakers, was 24. There was no charge for registration, rooms at International Hall, and meals during the workshop. Fellows were responsible for their own travel expenses.
From past workshop evaluations:
This was the best program for learning innovative ways of teaching legal ethics that I have ever attended.
