2016 AP-LS Annual Conference March 10-12, 2016 Westin Peachtree Plaza Atlanta, GA
There is so much to do, here are a few highlights courtesy of the Student Committee:
Welcome Breakfast: Join us on Thursday, March 10th at 9AM in the conference hotel (Westin Peachtree Plaza) for some coffee and light breakfast before the conference officially starts.
Foundational Issues in Psychology and Law: What Students Should Know, but Probably Don't. You might remember that last year we conducted a student training survey. What it showed us is that there are a few areas that the majority of our students are missing out on. Join us after breakfast on Thursday, March 10th at 10AM for an interactive workshop on one of those very important areas of law (tort law). All levels of experience with the topic are welcome.
What Does it Take To Be a Leader? Strengths and Challenges – A panel on leadership co-sponsored with the Professional Development of Women Committee; the Minority Affairs Committee; the Teaching, Training and Careers Committee; and the Early Career Professionals Committee. This session will include leaders throughout psychology, including APA Past-President Nadine Kaslow!
5K Fun Run: See Atlanta while meeting new people and working up a sweat. Make sure to register in advance for our annual Fun Run, which will start right from the conference hotel at 7AM on Friday, March 11th. That means the run gets going at 7AM, so you should have time to make it back to the conference in time for the first sessions. Runners and walkers of all speeds are welcome!
The View Outside the Ivory Tower: Careers in Psychology and Law Outside of Academia - Not sure what kind of job you'll want after graduation? Maybe you have no idea, maybe you know you don't want to be in academia, or maybe you even have a specific goal in mind but aren't sure how to get there? On Friday, March 11th at 1:30PM we have an amazing panel ready to give you some insight into these types of careers and how to get one.
Student Social - Free drinks? Check. Good food? Check. Good company? Double check. Join us on Friday, March 11th at 8PM (right after the Friday evening poster sessions) for a chance to meet other students, see familiar faces, and win signed books from some of our most beloved AP-LS leaders and authors.
