Legal Communication & Rhetoric: JALWD has issued a call for articles for its Volume 14 (Fall 2017) issue. The deadline for submissions is September 1, 2016. From the call:
The journal is a forum for conversation between academe and the practicing bar. Legal Communication & Rhetoric: JALWD’s mission is to advance the study of professional legal writing, broadly defined, and to become an active resource and a forum for conversation between the legal practitioner and the legal writing scholar. Legal Communication & Rhetoric: JALWD is dedicated to encouraging and publishing scholarship (1) focusing on the substance of legal writing; (2) grounded in legal doctrine, empirical research, or interdisciplinary theory; and (3) accessible and helpful to all “do-ers” of legal writing: attorneys, judges, law students, and legal academicians.
Traditionally, the journal declines publication of articles that are of interest to a purely academic or teaching audience.
