yes, we're a pillar!

PillarsAt first glance, the article at http://chronicle.com/daily/2009/01/9153n.htm appears to be about law student laptop use.  But read down, and you'll see it's more generally about student engagement in the law classroom and students' level of satisfaction with their legal educations.  When surveyed, some students expressed a desire for more writing experiences and feedback.  And that's where the article refers to legal writing as "a pillar of the law school curriculum."

If you're reading this blog, you probably already knew that legal writing courses provide important foundational elements in a law student's education.  But it's nice to receive affirmation in The Chronicle of Higher Education.
