Statement from the Board of Directors for the Legal Writing Institute
The Legal Writing Institute is looking forward to working with Mercer to host the Legal Writing Institute’s Applied Legal Storytelling conference this summer. It has come to our attention that, in early 2016, attorney Lin Wood donated funds to Mercer University School of Law and that Mercer University then named a moot court courtroom after Mr. Wood. We disavow any affiliation or connection between Mr. Lin Wood and the conference. The Legal Writing Institute remains committed to diversity, inclusion, civility, and integrity in the legal advocacy process. The purpose of the Applied Legal Storytelling Conference is to explore the use of applied narrative theory and storytelling on behalf of clients and causes, all within the bounds of an attorney’s ethical duties, including the duty of candor to the tribunal, the duty of fairness to opposing parties, the duty to bring forward only meritorious claims and contentions, and the duty to safeguard the integrity of the profession and our institutions of justice.
