Encouraging Legal Writing Scholarship

If we are going to change legal education, we need legal scholarship upon which we can base the changes.  Judy Stinson has written an article on how to encourage legal writing scholarship.

Generating Interest, Enthusiasm, and Opportunity for Scholarship: How Law Schools and Law Firms Can Create a Community and Culture Supportive of Scholarship

Abstract: Legal scholarship educates. The goal of this essay is to help lawyers and academics interested in improving legal writing create more scholarship. By creating a culture where scholarship is the norm — where scholarship is both an expected product of our intellectual pursuits and an expected creator of knowledge in the field — we can increase overall scholarly activities as well as our professional satisfaction.
