Ever wonder what an LWI President does when her term is up? She becomes an editor of the Journal of the Association of Legal Writing Directors.
The new co-editors of JALWD will be Joan Magat of Duke and Ruth Anne Robbins of Rutgers-Camden. Also new to the editorial board or to editorial board positions are Sue Painter-Thorne of Mercer, the new managing editor, and Tim Blevins of Florida A & M and Jason Cohen of Rutgers-Camden who are new assistant editors.
Michael Smith of Wyoming, one of the founders of the Journal, s stepping down from the Editorial Board after six issues and eight years of service.
The Fall 2010 issue of J. ALWD will be available electronically this summer and in print form this fall. This Metaphor & Narrative issue is expected to be one of the best issues so far.
Congratulations to all the new editors.
Hat tips to Ian Gallacher and Linda Berger (outgoing co-editors)
