The Legal Writing Institute (LWI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving legal writing by providing a forum for discussion and scholarship about legal writing, analysis, and research. LWI promotes these activities through its publications, workshops, specialty conferences, and the national biennial conferences held in even-numbered years.
The Legal Writing Institute has over 2,800 members and includes representatives from 38 different countries. We are the second largest organization of law professors in the United States. Only the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) involves more members of the legal academic community. LWI sponsors many different working committees and projects.
The Legal Writing Institute has its physical home at Mercer University School of Law. LWI gratefully thanks Mercer for all of its support.
