Abstract:     
This article follows-up on Jan M. Levine, Legal Research and Writing: What Schools Are Doing, and Who is Doing the Teaching, 7 SCRIBES JOURNAL OF LEGAL WRITING 51 (2000). Written three years later, this article reports new data showing that dynamic trends in the staffing of those programs have continued unabated. The article categorizes law-school writing programs by staffing model and faculty status for each United States law school accredited by the American Bar Association, plus those schools seeking ABA accreditation. The new article reflects changes at many schools, clarifies the situation at most schools, and adds information about a few brand-new law schools, and it also contains new information about whether the legal-writing faculty at each school may vote at faculty meetings.
