A recorded webinar featuring faculty from Stetson University College of Law will discuss giving oral feedback instead of written comments on student papers.

A live question and answer period will follow. 

“Email Effectiveness” is scheduled for Thursday, April 18, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. in Morrill Hall room 105.
