The Journal of the Association of Legal Writing Directors (J. ALWD) invites submission of articles for its Fall 2008 issue, Legal Writing Beyond Memos & Briefs. In this issue, the Journal will publish articles about the "best practices" of legal writing in contexts other than the traditional litigation setting. Although much valuable legal writing scholarship has focused on the memoranda and briefs that are produced in connection with lawsuits, many lawyers are engaged in other kinds of writing: they draft transactional documents, legislation, rules, and regulations; they write formal and informal opinions and correspondence; they produce essays and articles for legal scholars and practicing lawyers.
The Journal encourages submissions from law professors, practicing lawyers, and judges as well as from academics, researchers, and specialists in other disciplines. In addition to full-length articles, the Journal welcomes essays and practice notes. The final deadline for submission of articles is September 15, 2007. Article selection will be completed by November 1, 2007.
