Northwestern’s Professor Elizabeth Inglehart, pictured at right, has joined the blogosphere with a new blog called “Think like a Lawyer: Musings of a Legal Writing Professor.” She explains that it will offer “advice for LRW students, law students more generally, and beginning lawyers” on succeeding in law school and afterward. Many of its items will interest followers of this blog. For example, a student’s guest post presents insights about his summer clerkship with a federal judge. He writes that he drafted a memorandum and two opinions over the summer and learned two important lessons about handling such projects: “(1) get a good sense of what is expected of you before starting your project, and (2) be as thorough as your schedule permits you to be.”
Welcome, Professor Inglehart!
