Professor Evan Seamone, director of Legal Writing, has presented at a range of conferences during the fall 2016 semester.

In September, he presented at the University of Alabama, where he served as one of the Track Chairs for the Community Track of speakers on issues including the experience of women transitioning from the military into the community and faith-based approaches to healing wounds to the soul from combat. 

Brad Evans, a 2L who did a summer writing project under Seamone’s supervision, presented his research at the conference. Evans and Seamone addressed different aspects of how several problems with obtaining academic accommodations for graduate student veterans in Law Schools and Medical Schools offer insightful example of that divide in action. 

In October, Seamone presented at the University of Pennsylvania School of Law's Center for Ethics and the Rule of Law conference, “Using Law to Fight Terror: Legal Approaches to Combating Violent Non-State Actors.”  At the conference, Seamone shared his forthcoming book chapter, "Counting the Ripples:  The Challenge of Extraterritorial Jurisdiction to Prosecute Non-State Actors." 

In early November, Seamone presented at Harvard Law School during The Disabled Veterans (DAV) Distinguished Speaker Series. Judge Robert Russell, who pioneered the nation’s first Veterans Treatment Court in 2008, served as the keynote speaker.
