Free Webinar for New and Emerging Legal Writing Scholars

It can be challenging for legal writing professors to find the time for scholarship:  creating problems, grading memorandum, meeting with students, and the many other demands of teaching leave little time for anything else. However, legal writing professors in particular benefit from scholarship, whether to meet a scholarship requirement for job advancement, indulge an individual academic interest, or pursue a love of writing.  Personally, I identify even more with the challenges my students face when I am actively engaged in writing as well.  As the co-chair of the Legal Writing Institute’s Scholarship and Development Outreach Committee, I am happy to announce that we are offering a free webinar geared to new and emerging scholars.  With travel budgets tight we hope that many of our colleagues will take advantage of this opportunity to learn about how those in our field find the time and support for their scholarship efforts.  Details about the webinar follow:
