Law Academics Unblocked

A blog for law academics writing in English


Classic authors have attempted to pass on their understanding of writing. Orwell for instance suggested a few rules of good writing, though he himself deviated from them (see here).

Georges Orwell

It may be possible to break down some of the components and facets of this elusive process.

  • the writing process itself
  • the text and its language
  • differences between legal fields
  • a collective dimension of writing
  • techniques of writing and organising ideas (eg: Mumford method)
  • the editing and publishing process
  • different types of writing (eg: book reviews, case notes, grant-writing)
  • the aftermath of writing
  • events that make me revise my approach to writing
  • the environment of writing
  • sources of inspiration
  • desert island books
  • getting to know oneself
