Mr. Mullem's research interests center on the development of scholarly legal writing and rhetoric, and on legal research and writing pedagogy. He has recently completed an empirical survey of a trend relating to the use of authority in academic legal writing, and is in the process of writing up those findings. He is also working on a second draft of a novel, tentatively titled Great Battlefields of the Civil War. His short fiction has appeared in several literary journals.
