In the alphabet soup of the legal academy, both LWI and ALWD resources were helpful at the AALS hiring conference in D.C. this past weekend.
Teri McMurtry-Chubb (at Mercer) took the lead in organizing the AALS information session for faculty candidates interested in becoming legal writing professors. She was joined by Cassandra Hill (at Thurgood Marshall) and Mimi Samuel (at Seattle U.), leading "a lively and engaging session." The participants received hand-outs with information about the LWI website, LWI's upcoming One-Day Legal Writing Workshops, the definitive articles on finding a legal writing teaching job by Jan Levine (Duquesne), and Jan's webpage URL. Meanwhile Sue Liemer (Southern Illinois) represented the ALWD New Directors Committee and lent an ear for new(er) directors at the hiring conference.
Were any other LRW folks there?
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.
