In an article published on line in 2010, Charles E. Rounds, Jr. suggested that the expansion of legal writing programs in the law schools at the expense of instruction in core legal doctrine is why the law schools are turning out lawyers who cannot write. Associate Professor Jan Levine, Director of Legal Research and Writing, Duquesne University School of Law, responded with a spirited rebuttal. Via this article, Rounds was given the last word. The Rounds-Levine-Rounds exchange was originally published by The John William Pope Center for Higher Education (http://www.popecenter.org/). It was republished in Vol. XVIII, No. 2, Education & Practice, Spring 2010, a journal of the Virginia State Bar’s Section on Education of Lawyers. Rounds is a Professor of Law at Suffolk University Law School and author of 18 editions of Loring and Rounds: A Trustee’s Handbook.
