Abstract:     
Encouraging creativity and risk is an important — and underappreciated — dimension of the mentor-student process in student scholarly writing. This article models an imaginative reflection on collaborative supervision that produces student scholarship. The organizational motif of "sins" connects to extra-legal cultural constructions that permeate everyday life, including the life of writing, and more specifically confronts the conflation of "sin" and "sex" that persists in legal and nonlegal discourse. The boundaries of legal academic writing, like the limitations of sexual freedom, are sites of anxiety for both mentors and students; this article suggests that these borders also can be places of adventure.
