Boyd Faculty Honored at 15th Biennial Conference of the Legal Writing Institute

As reported in the June 2012 edition of Road Scholars, several Boyd faculty members, including Linda Berger, Jennifer Carr, Linda Edwards, Sara Gordon, Lori Johnson, Terry Pollman, and Rebecca Scharf, recently participated in the 15th Biennial Conference of the Legal Writing Institute (LWI) in Palm Desert, CA.

The Boyd School of Law would like to extend special congratulations to Professor Rebecca Scharf (right) who served as Co-Chair of the Conference's Program Committee. With a membership in the thousands and a Biennial Conference attendance of over 600, the LWI is an extremely large professional organization and Professor Scharf did a wonderful job chairing the Program Committee, including preparing the 89-page Conference Program.

Special congratulations also are due to Professor Linda Berger, who was elected in April 2012 to the position of LWI President Elect, and to Professor Terry Pollman, who was elected Assistant Editor in Chief of the Journal of the Legal Writing Institute and to the board of the Association of Legal Writing Directors. Additional congratulations are due to Professor Sara Gordon, whose presentation on schema theory and jury instructions was very well received, and to Professors Linda Berger, Linda Edwards, and Terry Pollman, who presented on scholarship and legal writing to a standing-room only crowd. Congratulations, Boyd colleagues!
