Karin Mika and Ralph Brill have been filming many of the leaders in the legal writing community to create a video history archive. This has been a very welcome initiative on their part to help celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Legal Writing Institute. Karin and Ralph have put in well more than 1000 hours of work to create what promises to be a very impressive documentary.
The video is narrated by Terri LeClercq and contains footage of Mary Lawrence, Chris Kunz, Helene Shapo, Susan Brody, Richard Neumann, Grace Tonner, Mary Beth Beazley, Laurel Oates, Chris Rideout, Anne Enquist, Marjorie Rombauer, and Jill Ramsfield. It also contains about 200 photos of LW people, places, and many important documents.
The video debut will be at the LWI conference lunch at Marco Island on Tuesday, June 29, 2010. It will also be shown later in the day in case you can't get into the room where it will be shown. The video is about 25 minutes long.
Hat tips to Ralph Brill and Karin Mika.
