Perspectives is sponsored and distributed free of charge by Thomson Reuters to a subscriber base of 4000+ readers. The current issue was just published (here) and we're now looking for new articles for our next issue which is planned for publication in late fall.
Perspectives is a journal for everyone interested in teaching legal research and legal writing, including:
- law librarians and law professors, including adjuncts;
- attorneys who help associates or interns develop as researchers and writers; and
- writing specialists at law schools, law firms, courts, and other legal institutions.
In two electronic publications appear year (fall and spring), Perspectives articles explore a broad array of teaching theories, techniques, and tools. Articles are both short—typically between 1,500 and 7,000 words and lightly footnoted. They are highly readable and typically focus on curricular design, goals, teaching methods, and assessments, for example how to:
- comment rigorously and encouragingly on student writing;
- efficiently research;
- collaborate in teaching;
- design, create, and manage online teaching modules;
- teach using insights from other disciplines;
- use technology to enhance learning; and
- engage today's law students, interns, and associates.
