congratulations grantees!

The Association of Legal Writing Directors (ALWD) and the Legal Writing Institute (LWI) have announced their summer 2007 research grant recipients.  The two organizations will be investing $27,000 this year to support scholarship projects by legal writing professors.  (It's hard not to wonder why these professors' law schools don't fund this scholarship, the way they fund their other professors' scholarship, but that's a topic for another post.)

Brady Coleman, South Texas College of Law
