Intensive Legal Writing & Drafting

Course Abbreviation: 
Credit Only: N Anon Gr: N

This course develops students' skills in common legal writing formats other than memos and briefs. Not intended as a remedial course, this course rather provides an opportunity for students to sharpen legal writing skills with an emphasis on clarity and precision of expression. Weekly writing assignments include a few fully drafted documents (e.g., a short will, a short contract, a statute), as well as letters, short pleadings, jury instructions, and other short pieces. Students will concentrate on re-writing and editing their work. This course satisfies the upper-level writing seminar requirement.

Applied Legal Analysis and Writing I (PSLFY 912) and Applied Legal Analysis and Writing II (PSLFY 914) required.
