The Legal Writing Prof Blog is an excellent resource not only to let fellow academics know about developments within the discipline of legal writing, but it's an even better outreach tool to let the practicing bar know about the work legal writing professors are doing to advance the study and practice of effective written and oral communication skills. There's a lot of expertise within our field that would be of great benefit to practitioners and it's the aim of the scholarship dude (i.e. me) to let them know about it.
In that spirit, if you have written a significant, scholarly article relating to legal writing and you would like to let blog subscribers know about it, please send me a copy. To prevent clogging up my in-box with large attachments while I'm on the road, I prefer to receive, in this order: 1. An SSRN or other link that allows me to access your article online; 2. a hardcopy sent to my snail-mail address at Nova Southeastern University Law School (the full address is available in my web profile link in the left margin); and 3. if all else fails, an email attachment in Microsoft Word.
I can't promise that I'll be able to read everything you send, but I'll do my best.
I am the scholarship dude.
