How many professors are members of the Association of American Law Schools Section on Legal Writing, Reasoning, and Research? The number may surprise you: 1,634, making it the third largest section within the AALS. Only two AALS Sections have larger membership: the Section on Women in the Law (with 1,840 members) and the Section on Constitutional Law (with 1,693 members).
But here's another interesting fact: the Legal Writing, Reasoning and Research Section has only one member more than the AALS Section on Clinical Legal Education (which has 1,633 members).
The current chair of the AALS Section on Legal Writing, Reasoning, and Research is Lou Sirico of Villanova University School of Law.
