New Mexico Law Review Article Garnering Attention

UNM School of Law BuildingOvercoming Writer’s Block and Procrastination for Attorneys, Law Students, and Law Professors, in the current issue of the New Mexico Law Review, is garnering a great deal of attention: It was featured in the Wall Street Journal Law Blog, is a “Top Ten” download on the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) and the #1 download in several SSRN categories, and was also featured on the Legal Writing Prof Blog.

The article, which offers practical advice for lawyers and law students in avoiding writing-related procrastination, was written by two experts, David A. Rasch, a psychologist with over 20 years’ experience working with writers, and Meehan Rasch, an appellate attorney and adjunct instructor of legal writing and advocacy at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law.

The New Mexico Law Review is a student-edited, general legal journal published two times a year. The New Mexico Law Review members are law students at the University of New Mexico School of Law who are dedicated to legal scholarship and are meticulous in their approach to legal writing.

Contributing authors from across the country include law professors, attorneys, judges, and our own Law Review second-year law students. The Editorial Board selects the articles for publication, then works with each author to finalize the article to meet the rigorous standards the New Mexico Law Review sets for itself and its authors. Articles are selected based on the quality of content, research, and writing. The Board is comprised of third-year law students who are solely responsible for all organizational and editorial decisions.
