    03.18.15 Professor Joy Kanwar Profiled in Legal Writing Institute Newsletter
    Brooklyn Law School Professor Joy Kanwar

    Professor Joy Kanwar, who teaches Legal Writing at Brooklyn Law School, was featured in the March issue of LWI Lives, the newsletter of the Legal Writing Institute.

    The article, “Discussing Legal Writing with Justice Scalia, and Other Worldly Adventures,” traces Kanwar’s career from her travels to India to a friendly debate about legal writing with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Kanwar says her pedagogical approach to legal writing stems from these experiences, as well as learning what captures her students’ interests.

    Kanwar joined the BLS faculty in 2008 from private practice, where she was a senior staff associate at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP. Her areas of practice included complex mass torts and insurance litigation, general litigation, products liability, securities litigation, general torts and contract law. She previously was a legal information analyst at Lawnavigator.com. At Vermont Law School, she was editor of Res Communes, an environmental law journal; and she won best paper in the J.B. Chase Writing Competition for a note that was published in the Vermont Law Review.
