Starting with the next academic year, the legal writing professors at Case Western Reserve University School of Law will be able to vote on almost everything that comes up at faculty meetings, with the exception of tenure and promotion decisions. Previously, the legal writing professors at Case couldn't vote at faculty meetings at all, so this is a big step forward!
Also, Professor Peter Friedman, who has been teaching at Case for a dozen years, will be visiting away at Detroit-Mercy College of Law next year. There all the legal writing professors get to vote on everything.
(I keep a chart of who gets to vote at law school faculty meetings at each school in the United States, among legal writing, clinic, and law library professors. It is updated periodically at the Association of Legal Writing Directors (ALWD) website. If you ever need the very most up-to-date version, just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
