Our listserv, Legal Writing Institute community (LWIC), is a closed listserv. It is intended to provide a forum in which scholars and teachers of legal writing can discuss topics in their field. Professional teachers of legal writing are eligible to join the group. Included within that category are current, former, and aspiring teachers of legal writing in law schools and other academic institutions as well as lawyers who teach legal writing as part of their business or practice.
LWIC can be accessed through user email (by sending messages to firstname.lastname@example.org), by going to https://lwic.mobilize.io, or via mobile app (downloadable for free at your app store).
