good news from North Carolina!

from Ruth McKinney at UNC. . .

191photo First, Craig Smith

has accepted our Dean's offer to join our faculty beginning this July as our Director of Writing (directing the first-year program) in the rank of Clinical Professor of Law.  Many of you know Craig well already from the many hats he has worn successfully in the legal writing community, not the least of which was as a recent past President of ALWD.  






In addition, Jon McClanahan has accepted our Dean's offer to join the faculty as our new Director of SOAR (our third-year bar success program).  Jon is one of our own top graduates who was instrumental as a student in starting our student-led Honors Writing Scholars Program.  He has recently completed a clerkship with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.  In his new capacity at Carolina, Jon will continue to teach in our first-year legal writing program but he is also developing a for-credit bar exam course and will coach third-year students as they prepare for the bar this summer.
