from Ruth McKinney at UNC. . .Many of you know Craig well already from the many hats he has worn successfully in the legal writing community, not the least of which was as a recent past President of ALWD.
In addition, Jon McClanahan has accepted our Dean's offer to join the faculty as our new Director of SOAR (our third-year bar success program). Jon is one of our own top graduates who was instrumental as a student in starting our student-led Honors Writing Scholars Program. He has recently completed a clerkship with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. In his new capacity at Carolina, Jon will continue to teach in our first-year legal writing program but he is also developing a for-credit bar exam course and will coach third-year students as they prepare for the bar this summer.
