The Board of Directors of the Legal Writing Institute has announced its plans to develop and publish a monograph series on topics related to teaching, curriculum, scholarship, and status issues. The goals and benefits of the new series are many:
- support new legal writing teachers in learning their craft
- help new teachers avoid “reinventing the wheel”
- provide new and experienced easy access to articles with different points of view about the same topic
- serve as a basic reference tool and a foundation for further scholarship in the same or related areas
- offer significant “PR” about the intellectual depth of the legal writing community to faculty and administrators in legal education generally
- give publication and republication opportunities for legal writing professionals
Jane Gionfriddo will serve as editor-in-chief for the first volume, which will focus on giving feedback on student work.
Monograph committee members include Co-Chairs, Steve Johansen (Lewis & Clark) & Jane Kent Gionfriddo (Boston College); Members, Susan DeJarnatt (Temple), Kathleen Elliott Vinson (Suffolk), and Allison Julien (Marquette).
