Nancy Jones
Director of Writing Resource Center

Since 1990, Nancy Jones has directed the law school's Writing Resource Center, the first writing center in the country to be housed in a law school and devoted exclusively to the law school community. Prior to that, she taught writing at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and to K-12 public school teachers (through the Iowa Writing Project). She also was on the staff of the NEA-funded Institute on Writing at the University of Iowa (1978-1981), designed for directors of freshman composition from across the US. In an earlier life, she taught English to junior high and high school students in Spain, Germany, and England. She is an occasional contributor to The Iowa Lawyer, and she regularly gives workshops on writing to lawyers and judges through law firms, CLE courses, and regional professional meetings.
