Bringing Live Legal Scholars to your Law School (Virtually)
Audience: Any
Technical Level: Low

How can you bring internationally renowned speakers to your school for free? Andrew Sitzer, a student at the USC School of Law is working to create a global conferencing network. Through the Internet, your school can participate in live video presentations by famous legal scholars. Find out how your school can become involved in this not-for-profit program that will benefit large and small schools alike. This boxed-lunch discussion will include a brainstorming session and a follow-up discussion of how to extend this videoconferencing network into other areas of distance learning.

VisionQuest is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a charter for connecting students with technology visionaries through distance learning. The goal for VisionQuest is to create a nationwide speaker-series for lawschools. Through distance-learning and video-conferencing technologies, VisionQuest aims to link up multiple lawschools for the purpose of sharing guest-speakers. This free resource would provide academia with a global audience for what is now just a private one-room event.
