Membership is open to every Legal Writing Professional. This term is defined as "a current professional teacher of legal writing at a Qualifying Law School." In turn, a Qualifying Law School is defined as follows:
Each Qualified Law School is also entitled to have two Delegates – members who can vote in elections and serve as officers/directors – each academic year. If a school has a legal writing director, that director is entitled to select the school’s two delegates each academic year. At directorless schools, the writing faculty collectively selects the school’s two delegates for that academic year, yet all of them can continue to be members.
The annual membership dues of the Association of Legal Writing Directors are $50 per member. You must be paid in full in order to vote in ALWD elections.
You must complete the membership application for your school online.
You must pay $50 for each member. A confirmation email with your membership information will be sent to you.
Here is ALWD's W-9 in case your school requires it.
