The March 2008 issue of the Journal of Legal Education just landed in my mail box this week. It includes a thought-provoking article by Professor Kristen Konrad Robbins-Tiscione of Georgetown, entitled From Snail Mail to E-Mail: The Traditional Legal Memorandum in the Twenty-First Century. Professor Robbins-Tiscione reports the results of a survey on the use of legal memoranda in law practice, answered by 140 practitioners who are Georgetown alums. Given the predominance of legal memos in 1L legal writing courses, the article is well worth a look for every legal writing professor.
