This paper starts from the fact that collegiality is an under-theorized realm of legal writing. After some introductory remarks it then proceeds to offer a theoretical framework of the characteristics and attributes that should be understood as being part of any aspirational understanding of what it means for a legal academic (and most likely any sort of university academic) to be described as collegial.

Keywords: collegiality, universities, law schools, academics, hiring, morale
