A new article by Joan Blum and Kathleen Elliott Vinson, Teaching in Practice: Legal Writing Faculty as Expert Writing Consultants to Law Firms, explores an interesting and growing trend. According to the article abstract on SSRN, the authors address not only the ways that firms benefit from the assistance of writing experts, but also how consulting work benefits legal writing professors--and not just monetarily. The article is scheduled to be published by the Mercer Law Review later this year.
