Four Wake Forest School of Law legal writing professors were among those who spoke at the Legal Writing Institute’s nationwide One-Day Workshop at Elon University School of Law with the theme, “Legal Writing: Passport to the Profession,” on Friday, Dec. 8, 2017.

Professors Christine Nero Coughlin (JD ’90), Russell Gold and Elizabeth Johnson discussed “Coordinating Writing Assignments with Other 1L Courses” as part of the session titled, “The ‘Doctrinal’ Dilemma.”

Professor Harold Lloyd presented “Why Legal Writing is a Doctrinal Course” also part of “The ‘Doctrinal’ Dilemma.”

They joined faculty members from the University of North Carolina School of Law, the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University, Elon University School of Law and York University in Toronto. Elon Law Professor Sue Liemer, director of the Legal Method & Communication Program, and Associate Professor Catherine Wasson, director of Legal Research & Writing, led efforts to bring the workshop to Greensboro.
