Substantive, high quality written materials are vital to our conferences, and are generally expected from presenters. They greatly enhance the understanding of your topic matter for attendees, and they are important for the accreditation of our conferences for continuing professional education.
Materials – including papers, PowerPoints, and speaker biographies – are generally due 30 days prior to the start of the conference. This time allows the Event Manger to compile the materials, format them as necessary, and get them printed for attendees. Materials should be submitted as e-mail attachments to your Event Manager by the deadline provided, and should be left in their native format. We accept Word documents (.doc), WordPerfect documents (.wpd), PowerPoint presentations (.ppt), and Adobe Portable Document Format files (.pdf). For more information, please review our Course Materials Guidelines
, which describe formatting, file naming, and submission information:
- Papers: Papers are welcome for all sessions, and frequently serve as a valuable resource for attendees long after the conference concludes. Please insert this cover sheet at the front of your paper to ensure uniformity in our course materials.
- PowerPoints: PowerPoints help attendees follow along with speaker remarks, and can serve as a useful resource after the conference. Please review our Course Materials Guidelines for specific details on how PowerPoint slides should be formatted for maximum effectiveness.
- Speaker Biographies: Speaker biographies are included in the course binder and are used by the Presiding Officer to introduce each speaker. Biographies are typically one page long but can be shorter. Click here for a sample.
UT Law CLE cannot guarantee inclusion of documents received after the deadline in the course materials provided to attendees. If the deadline is not met, you may be asked to provide printed copies of your course materials for attendees at the conference. If this creates undue hardship, or if there is some situation that you believe warrants special consideration, please let us know.
