Who among us hasn’t heard of or sought after those quirky Supreme Court bobbleheads? This session is your chance to meet bobblehead creator and master of marketing, Ross E. Davies. Professor Davies is the Editor-in-Chief of the popular The Green Bag law journal and the brains behind the publication’s notable outreach approach. The Green Bag manages to celebrate legal “geekery” while remaining widely respected by all corners of the legal profession. The Green Bag celebrates legal history, but also is on the cutting edge of what is happening now. The creative strategist behind this ever-evolving balancing act is going to share his insights with attendees. This fireside chat with Professor Davies focuses on how outreach strategies, such as those employed by The Green Bag, can be used to make law, generally, and access to justice initiatives, specifically, more fun and accessible to everyone.
