Special Requirement


Legal Practice: Writing and Analysis or the equivalent first year legal writing course.


Students may not receive credit for both this course and the Advanced Legal Writing Workshop.

Professor permission is not required.

Students enrolled in the course will be writing, commenting, or revising nearly every week, with approximately five out-of-class writing assignments, most of which will be revised after the professors provide feedback on them. Students should thus be prepared to make a substantial time investment in the class.

Because of the collaborative nature of the class, students may not withdraw from this class after the add/drop period ends without the permission of the professor.

Would you like to offer the Pass/Fail grading option?

Does this course qualify as a "simulation course"?

Is this course available to distance students?

Is this a mandatory Pass-Fail course?
