This 162-page document constitutes the record of the proceedings of the first national conference of legal writing program directors, held in San Diego, California, at the California Western School of Law on July 28-29, 1995. Sixteen conference presentations are reported, and the document also includes the reports of the post-conference activities by the conference attendees that led to their decision to form the Association of Legal Writing Directors, a national non-profit organization (with members at virtually every United States law school) that has been recognized by the American Bar Association and the Association of American Law Schools. The original document was edited by three law professors, with support from the West Publishing Company, and while the document has been available on the Internet, and was distributed to all conference attendees, it has not been formally published elsewhere.
