Legal Writing Course: Elemental Legal Writing

We are working on a new Legal Writing course to be offered in 2022: Elemental Legal Writing

This course consists of video lessons, writing assignments, and live review/feedback sessions. Because of the written feedback required for this course, class size will be limited 5-10 students.

Students will learn about the new topics in the classes. 

The first few classes would set the scene and introduce students to the course (with some simple assignments but without serious writing assignments). After the initial classes, each class would end with a writing assignment, which the students would work on and submit. Then, there would be a review session, where general comments on the writing would be included, with some feedback for each student, as well as written review would be returned to each student. To improve writing it is important to write, receive feedback, then make corrections on a revised draft, which is what this course would do.

Enrollment opens 10 February. The 1st Cohort that takes this course, will pay a discounted price. If you are interested in this course, sign up to get a free invitation to purchase the course early!  So do not miss your chance! Learn more here.
