TIP: My colleague, Professor Elizabeth Fajans, is Brooklyn Law School's writing specialist. In the Reference collection, BLS Library has multiple copies of her (and Professor Falk's) highly useful guide: Scholarly Writing for Law Students: Seminar Papers, Law Review Notes, and Law Review Competition Papers. Also, new members of scholarly journals should view Professor Fajans' Journal Article Workshop presentation. (Running time: 25 minutes.)
TIP: View the presentation of American Journal of International Law editors: What Makes a Great International Law Article?
