The Journal of the Association of Legal Writing Directors (JALWD) now has its own web page. Editor Linda Berger describes the latest issue of JALWD and brings other welcome news:
Volume 4, When Worlds Collide, is a collection of essays growing out of the 2007 annual meeting program held by the American Association of Law Schools Section on Legal Writing Reasoning and Research. The program focused on relationships between legal writing teachers and clinicians in teaching and scholarship. The print publication of Volume 4 will occur in conjunction with Volume 5, Legal Writing Beyond Memos and Briefs, which will be published (by West) and distributed (by the Association of Legal Writing Directors -- ALWD) this fall.
[The Journal] also has become an SSRN Partner in Publishing; articles from past volumes are now available on SSRN. And ALWD also entered electronic licensing agreements with HeinOnline and the H.W. Wilson Company; articles from past issues will be available from those online sources as well.
