Legal Research & Writing

Politics & Faculty Status

On July 28–29, 1995, a conference of legal writing directors was held in San Diego on “The Politics of Legal Writing.” The proceedings of that conference were published in hard copy of which this is an electronic version. The Proceedings is a significant resource on such topics as the status and salary of legal writing professionals, workload and teaching load standards, supervising legal writing teachers, curricular change, and grading philosophies. It also contains extensive bibliographic references.
