Boyle Announces Publication of “Perspectives”


Professor Robin Boyle announces the publication of Perspectives: Teaching Legal Research and Writing, vol. 29(2) (Spring 2022), available on the website of Thomson Reuters and its Faculty Resource page. Serving on the Executive Board for this publication, Professor Boyle is particularly proud that through the collaborative efforts of legal writing professors and librarians, the Board is able to bring forth articles pertaining to legal research and writing, and beyond—as her article points out. A range of topics in this issue may be of interest to our community—teaching oral advocacy, crafting effective analogies, teaching to neurodiverse students, building international communities within the Law School, and many more.

Professor Boyle’s article, “Swimming with Broad Strokes: Publishing and Presenting Beyond the LW Discipline” (with Stephen Paskey), appears in this volume. They write:

In our greater skills community, we share ideas, borrow and tweak theories from other disciplines, and create new approaches. It is understandable how our community may expand pedagogy to the brim of legal writing or explore topics outside of the field. Skills professors are, by nature, a creative collective who teach from the heart and enjoy writing and thinking. Our publishing pursuits can be boundless.

Both Authors of this Article share mutual experiences of dipping our toes in a pond beyond the legal writing continent. Our writing experiences have influenced our teaching, bringing these broader perspectives to our legal writing pedagogy.
