Robin Boyle Laisure (St. John's University School of Law) has been teaching legal research and writing full time for 15 years. In 2005, she received her university's award for Outstanding Faculty Achievement.
Five years ago, Robin also started academic support in addition to teaching legal writing. This week, the dean at St. John's announced that Robin was being promoted to Assistant Dean of Academic Success.
Robin will now be splitting her time equally between legal writing writing and academic support. She will continue to teach legal writing and remain with the title of Professor of Legal Writing in addition to her new decanal title.
Robin is a member of the Board of the Legal Writing Institute and currently serves as the LWI Secretary. She is also a member of the editorial board of the Journal of the Legal Writing Institute and previously chaired the LWI Scholarship Outreach Committee. She organized the New York part of the LWI workshops held last December for new legal writing professors and adjunct professors of legal writing.
Robin also chairs the Association of American Law Schools Section on Academic Support.
Congratulations, Robin, on your appointment as Assistant Dean of Academic Success!
