Now available are the results of the 2007 survey by the Association of Legal Writing Directors and the Legal Writing Institute. Over 92 % of all ABA accredited law schools responded to the survey, so this is solid data. In addition to salaries and other terms of employment for legal writing professors, the survey results include information on staffing models for first-year legal writing programs, curricular choices, upper-level writing courses, technology use, non-lawyer writing specialists, and teaching assistants. Data from the past three years are reported next to this year's data, so trends are easily discernible. Survey results going back to 1999 are also available.
