Through The Scout Report, I recently learned of the Web site of the Legal Writing Institute, an organization that serves as a forum for discussion and scholarship about legal writing, analysis and research. Features of interest here include:
- Free access to The Second Draft, the LWI’s newsletter featuring articles on legal writing.
- Free access to The Journal of the Legal Writing Institute, its scholarly publication.
- Job listings for legal writing positions.
- A syllabus bank for legal writing teachers.
Anyone with an interest in legal writing can join LWI. Even better, membership is free. As an organization devoted to writing, LWI has no Department of Redundancy Department, but it does have a Committee on Committees.
