I am the grateful recipient of a Stan Marsh Bursary to support my attendance at ALT’s annual conference in Leeds during 13-15 April 2014. The theme of the conference is “Responding to Change”.
I am especially thankful to Professor Rebecca Huxley-Binns and Dr Jess Guth for their patient support during multiple exchanges of correspondence and planning my attendance at Leeds.
I am very fortunate to be in the position to undertake my PhD on a full-time basis, supported by an Australian scholarship award, and occasional funds from Deakin University for specific purposes. That said, the three years I’ve set aside for the research are lean times financially, and unexpected support like the Stan Marsh bursary is enormously helpful.
I’m really looking forward to this conference, and meeting the many legal education experts I’ve come to know through Twitter, LinkedIn and various blogs! The benefit of attending these conferences cannot be understated – exposure to others’ ideas, exposing own ideas to constructive confrontation, serendipitous moments that arise from discussions during breaks – they are substantially generative and informative.
