Yes, I should be blogging about a leaked SCOTUS opinion. BUT, my junior associate got his ear tubes removed early this morning and we have been snuggling, attempting to nap, and watching a lot of cartoons. Here is information on a recent publication that might be of interest.
Volume 1 of The Unending Conversation at Stetson is live! You can access it here: https://www2.stetson.edu/law-review/. The Unending Conversation is a project of Stetson’s Institute for the Advancement of Legal Communication led by Professor Anne Mullins. A volume of the Stetson Law Review Forum is dedicated exclusively to legal writing and feature essays that are directly responsive to extant legal writing scholarship.
Volume 1 features thought-provoking essays from Rebekah Hanley (Oregon), Kim Ricardo (UIC), Amy Soled (Rutgers), and Kathy Stanchi (UNLV). Among other things:
- Professor Hanley takes a decidedly pro-plagiarism stance in her piece.
- Professor Ricardo argues for an end to discrimination in the legal academy through solutions grounded in substantive equality.
- Professor Soled roundly rejects a recent claim of protectionism within the discipline.
- Professor Stanchi challenges the legal writing community to examine deductive reasoning more deeply to reveal potential bias.
