I think I may ask my Legal Writing Professor for a recommendation, but was wondering if people thought it would be better idea to ask another professor or will a recommendation from a LW Prof. be sufficient?

I'd ask doctrinal professors who you have a relationship with.

I would lean towards doctrinal professors; however, I did have my LRW teacher write one of my recomendations (of the 2 required).

I didn't really have strong relationships with professors, and my transfer results were not (and I don't see why they would be) affected by using a LRW teacher.

In fact, unless you are extremely borderline, I doubt the recomendations matter at all. School, Class Rank - end thread.

a letter from your LRW professor is absolutely fine, and there is a strong argument it is actually better than a doctrinal professor who has presumably seen less of your work in comparison to a LRW professor.
