Although the second edition of the ABA Sourcebook on Legal Writing Programs has been unavoidably held up just as it was ready to go to print, the bibliography for the new Sourcebook is available on-line. The bibliography had to be put on-line because it just got too huge for a reasonably-priced, manageable book -- thanks to the explosion of legal writing scholarship in the last decade, since the first edition of the Sourcebook was published.
This bibliography contains books, articles, and more. It is a deep, deep resource for almost anything you might be researching relating to the teaching of legal writing, legal writing program administration, and legal writing scholarship.
Although many people contributed to this bibliography, the Herculean task of compiling, organizing, and standardizing all the information was undertaken with aplomb by Professor Kristen Gerdy at Brigham Young University. The ever-patient editor of this new edition is Professor Eric Easton at the University of Maryland.
