The AALS hiring pow-wow concluded recently, and it seems that a larger number of legal writing candidates used the AALS interview process than has been the case in the past. To what extent is this a good thing? Does it portend status equity with doctrinal hiring? Maybe so. But do the majority of job applicants in the field utilize this approach? How are most law schools finding their new hires? This could be a good question to ask in the upcoming 2007 ALWD-LWI Survey of Legal Writing Programs.
