If you're working on an article about any aspect of legal writing, consider submitting it to the Journal of Legal Writing, the peer-edited journal of the Legal Writing Institute. The journal is seeking articles from other disciplines that extend the boundaries of legal writing, as well as those that seek to improve pedagogy and scholarship in the field of legal writing through interdisciplinary and empirical research.
The journal publishes articles, research reports, empirical studies, book reviews, and critical commentary about both the theory and the practice of legal writing, or writing issues that have applications to the field of legal writing, the design of courses and curricula, and teaching techniques for the classroom and law office.
Send your manuscript to the Editor-in-Chief, Kristin B. Gerdy, [email protected], as a Word attachment. Citations must comply with the ALWD Citation Manual (ISBN 0-7355-3640-6), and the journal will conform your footnotes if you follow a different system of citation. The deadline for submissions for Volume 18 is September 15, 2011.
