This essay (part two of a three-part series) strives to begin a collaborative discussion with legal writing, clinical, and doctrinal faculty about what “change” in legal education should mean. In Part I, the authors rolled out a blueprint for transformative change in legal writing pedagogy, which includes: (1) more required skills courses that mirror the actual practice of law; (2) a three-year program that includes up to four writing credits in every semester; and (3) increased collaboration between legal writing professors and doctrinal faculty. In this essay, we get more specific, and propose a three-year legal writing curriculum that builds upon the previous generations’ impressive scholarly and curricular accomplishments. The new legal writing pedagogy represents an evolution, not a revolution, and an opportunity for legal writing professors to be on the vanguard of institutional and progressive reform.
