The essays presented in this issue of the Journal of the Association of Legal Writing Directors (ALWD) began as presentations delivered on the panel of the Legal Writing Section Program at the Annual Meeting of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) in Washington, D.C., in January 2007. The theme of the Section Program, When Worlds Collide, focused on relationships between legal writing teachers and clinicians in teaching and scholarship. Specifically, these essays explore existing intersections between legal writing and clinical pedagogy, scholarship, and practice as well as the spaces where there is an undeveloped potential for forging and developing professional relationships between writing and clinical teachers. Thus, this symposium is about where legal writing and clinical teachers meet as colleagues and as collaborators. But it is equally about where we collide and where we miss each other.
