The Wyoming Center for the Study of Written Advocacy has announced the recipients of grants for presentations at the upcoming Legal Writing Institute (LWI) Conference in Philadelphia.
The Wyoming Center for the Study of Written Advocacy is part of the legal writing program at the University of Wyoming College of Law that received a Top-15 national ranking in the latest U.S. News & World Report. The mission of the Center is "to produce, facilitate, and promote research and scholarship that explores the substance, procedure, and ethics of written legal advocacy." The Center was created to advance the doctrinal substance of written legal advocacy.
Consistent with the Center's narrow mission, these grants have been created specifically to subsidize presentations that focus on the substance of written legal advocacy, such as persuasive writing strategies, issues regarding the rules of legal procedure relevant to written advocacy, and ethical issues relevant to written legal advocacy.
The LWI Conference was chosen as the platform for the first grant opportunity. To be eligible for the grants, applicants were limited to the pool of presenters at the Conference. As part of its’ objective, The Center plans to award more grants at future legal writing conferences.
The winning presentations are listed in chronological order according to the LWI Program schedule:
The Center received many excellent applications for these grants, and would like to thank everyone who participated in the Center’s inaugural grant program.
