The National Jurist Magazine has just named 24 legal educators and one "legal education public policy advocate" to its 2012 list of the 25 most influential people in legal education. The list will be published in the January issue of the National Jurist Magazine.
One legal writing professor included on that list is Sophie M. Sparrow of the University of New Hampshire, who is currently in residence as a visiting professor in the Lawyering Skills Program at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. Sophie is well known in the legal writing community (indeed, I'm surprised that there were 24 other people named to the list of the most influential people!). She has given dozens of workshops and presentations on teaching, professionalism, assessment, and legal writing. Her publications include "Teaching Law by Design" and "Teaching Law by Design for Adjuncts" published by Carolina Academic Press. She is also a co-author of a forthcoming book called "Team Leadership for Lawyers," also from Carolina Academic Press.
