The 2008 ALWD-LWI Survey Results are now available, just by clicking on the link in this sentence. Once again, over 90% of ABA accredited law schools responded to the survey, making this data highly reliable. It includes a wealth of information, such as the salaries and terms of employment of legal writing directors and other legal writing professors, the types of research and writing assignments typically given, the use of writing specialists and teaching assistants, etc., etc. The results are presented side-by-side with results from the recent previous years, so trends are easy to spot. Everyone teaching legal writing or hiring legal writing professors should take a look at this survey.
P.S. It is 126 pages long (so you can imagine how much information is in there!)
