Abstract

Throughout its existence and through the work of its members, the Legal Writing Institute (LWI) has enhanced the professionalism and quality of legal writing programs. The markers of the growth in professionalism include increased status, enhanced legal writing programs that include classes beyond the first year, and increased opportunities and expectations for LRW professionals as scholars.

The Legal Writing Institute has much to celebrate. LWI members are teaching a wide array of courses, in addition to the traditional, first-year, required course. LWI members are producing scholarship. LWI members are enjoying hard-earned status improvements. In the next twenty-five years, LWI members may not always agree on the next steps to take, but LWI members will work collaboratively to set and reach goals.
