Leveling the Hill of Sisyphus: Becoming a Professor of Legal Writing
52 Pages Posted: 12 Mar 2007
This Article fills a largely unexplored area in the literature about making one's career within the law school academy. Lawyers considering their first jobs as a professor of legal writing comprise the primary audience; legal writing professors who are seeking a teaching appointment at another law school, or perhaps even a directorship of a legal writing program, make up the secondary audience. Legal writing professors have written many other articles about legal writing programs, pedagogy, and teachers, and this Article tries to link those pieces about legal writing to the other scholarly articles about teaching within the law school academy, offering a comprehensive view of the possibilities of making one's career as a legal writing professor.
