The Scribes Journal of Legal Writing

The Journal was founded by long-time Board member and Past President Bryan A. Garner. Current editor-in-chief, Professor Megan Boyd, and her staff work tirelessly to bring us first-rate scholarship on legal writing. Scribes is forever grateful to Bryan, former editor-in-chief Mark Cooney, Distinguished Emeritus Professor Joseph Kimble, copyeditor Karen Magnuson, and Cindy Hurst. Scribes would also like to thank editors Raymond Ward, Laurel Romanella, Jill Barton, and DeLeith Gossett.
