Legal Writing Scholarship Grants
LWI and ALWD select recipients of competitive scholarship grants.
These grants, which are also funded through generous donations by LexisNexis, reflect the three organizations’ commitment to the professional development of legal research and writing professionals.
Recipients are full-time or adjunct professors teaching legal writing who demonstrate great promise in their pursuit of a particular scholarly project. Any full time or adjunct professor of legal writing may apply, though the dollar amount of the grant could depend on the successful applicant’s ability to obtain scholarship stipends at his or her home school.
