The Association of Legal Writing Directors (ALWD) and the Legal Writing Institute (LWI) announced the 2009 Legal Writing Scholarship Grants for teachers of legal research and writing. Applications are due February 3, 2009. These grants reflect the two organizations’ commitment to the professional development of legal research and writing professionals. Past grants have varied from $2000 to $5000. Royalties from the ALWD Citation Manual are the primary source of ALWD funding each year.
In 2008, LWI and ALWD cooperatively evaluated and chose five applications to fund for a total of $17,500 in grants.
