Here is the new logo for the Legal Writing Institute. It's to be officially unveiled next week, and we were not going to post it until then, but copies appeared today on the Legal Writing Listserve so our self-imposed ban is lifted. It is a great new logo, and one that undoubtedly took a great deal of creative energy.
The LWI website has also been updated, and includes this great description of the organization -- it is one that makes you tremendously proud to be a member:
The Legal Writing Institute (LWI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving legal writing by providing a forum for discussion and scholarship about legal writing, analysis, and research. LWI promotes these activities through its publications, workshops, specialty conferences, and the national biennial conferences held in even-numbered years.
The Legal Writing Institute has over 2,100 members and includes representatives from 38 different countries. We are the second largest organization of law professors in the United States. Only the American Association of Law Schools (AALS) involves more members of the legal academic community. LWI sponsors many different working committees and projects.
Congratulations to the LWI committee that helped choose the logo and design the website was chaired by Mimi Samuel and included Ken Chestek, Tracy McGaugh, Ruth Anne Robbins, and David Thomson.
Thanks also to Joe Oppegaard from the design team at Montana B, who sent me a copy of the new logo to post here on the blog.
