Co-chairs Ben Templin, at Thomas Jefferson School of Law, and Sarah Ricks, at Rutgers-Camden School of Law, have announced:
"The Legal Writing Institute and the Association of Legal Writing Directors are pleased to announce that, for 2007, LWI will be teaming up with ALWD to jointly offer the 2007 ALWD-LWI Summer Research Grants.
"At their January meeting, the LWI Board set aside $10,000 for 2007 summer grants. The ALWD Board determines the amount of scholarship money based on the ALWD Citation Manual revenues.
"Because this (happily) increases the pool of available money for 2007 summer research grants, legal writing teachers are encouraged to apply for a grant.
"Since ALWD has a well developed system of choosing award recipients, this year the LWI and ALWD Scholarship Committees will join forces to jointly award summer research grants. Ben Templin, Thomas Jefferson School of Law, Chair of the LWI Scholarship Committee, and Sarah Ricks, Rutgers-Camden School of Law, Chair of the ALWD Scholarship Committee, will jointly administer the awards.
"As previously announced, applications are due by February 1, 2007, 5 pm EST, via e-mail."
