I recently received an e-mail from a reader of this blog, inquiring how one goes about becoming a legal writing professor. My response was to highly recommend she read two relevant articles, and then she would know what more specific questions to ask. The articles are:
Jan Levine, Leveling the Hill of Sisyphus: Becoming Professor of Legal Writing, 26 Fla. St. U. L. Rev. 1067 (1999).
Ilhyung Lee, The Rookie Season, 39 Santa Clara L. Rev. 473 (1999).
This is the time of year that U.S. law schools are working on hiring decisions for jobs that begin in August 2010, so if you are interested in teaching at a U.S. law school, don't delay getting started on a job search.
