The Winter 2012-13 issue of The Second Draft, the newsletter of the Legal Writing Institute, will examine scholarship as it relates to legal research, writing, and lawyering skills faculty. For professors of LRW, does scholarship mean focusing only on issues uniquely related to legal writing instruction, such as teaching research skills or how to construct and draft legal memoranda; or, should it also mean developing an additional “doctrinal” area of expertise? This newsletter welcomes articles addressing these questions and also articles explaining where to publish articles; how to develop and choose ideas for scholarly articles; alternative forms of scholarship such as CLE presentations and books; advice on strategically developing a body of scholarship; and the benefits, both personal and professional, of engaging in scholarly writing.
Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15.
