Scholarly Works

In this Article, the authors explore the questions of whether legal writing topics are subjects fit for scholarship and whether scholarship on these topics could support promotion and tenure. The authors examine the scholarship of today’s legal writing professors—what they are writing and where it is being published—and they define the term “legal writing topic,” identifying major categories of legal writing scholarship and suggesting criteria for evaluation in this emerging academic area.
