Many legal writing professors are familiar with the Idea Bank operated by the Legal Writing Institute. Basically, you contribute a legal writing assignment, you get a password, and then you can use what others have contributed.
This week for the first time everyone attending the New Law Professors Workshop, presented by the Association of American Law Schools, will learn about another, brand-new database that also makes teaching materials from experienced professors available to other law professors. The Teaching Materials Network includes contact information for law professors who are willing to share their teaching notes, PowerPoints, handouts, etc., with other law professors. Many areas of law teaching are represented, including legal writing. And if you're an experienced professor, it's not took late to add yourself to the resource list.
