This Article first briefly traces the development of legal writing programs and the various forms of job security currently afforded to legal writing faculty. It then examines standards for promotion and retention of legal writing faculty eligible for long-term contracts under 405(c), specifically in terms of titles, rank, and term of employment contracts, and the categories of criteria applicable to promotion for each term of employment. Finally, the Article examines some of the procedural aspects associated with promotion and retention of legal writing faculty under a 405(c) model, particularly in terms of evaluation and objection procedures.
