This foreword recommends the forthcoming second edition of Scholarly Writing: Ideas, Examples, and Execution by Jessica L. Clark and Kristen E. Murray. The book, published by Carolina Academic Press, is a welcome tool and useful resource for students embarking on their scholarly writing endeavors. Having supervised hundreds of LL.M. candidates struggling to complete a thesis, J.D. students attempting to fulfill a scholarly note requirement dominating their second-year law journal experience, and J.D. and LL.M. candidates writing seminar papers or independent research and writing projects, the author encourages students to invest in Scholarly Writing as a helpful and instructive lifeline. The author recommends the book not only to students writing scholarly papers, but also to faculty colleagues supervising students’ scholarly writing projects. The book’s companion website provides links to valuable examples, such as the student notes and other resources mentioned throughout the book. The site also provides updated information about scholarly writing developments and resources.
