The Association of Legal Writing Directors (ALWD) is pleased to announce the 2018 ALWD
teaching grants for faculty who teach legal research and writing. These grants reflect ALWD’s
commitment to the professional development of legal research and writing faculty. These grants
enable gifted educators to spend their summers exploring teaching ideas of interest to them and
to produce teaching tools, materials, and curriculum that will assist others in the field.
Typically, grants range from $1,500 to $2,500. The number of grants awarded depends on the
quality of the applications and funds available. Royalties from the ALWD Guide to Legal
Citation are the primary source of ALWD funding each year.
The ALWD Teaching Grants Committee will blindly review and rank grant applications. The
Committee will then make its recommendations to the ALWD Board, which will make the final
decision regarding the recipients.
