This course offers students the opportunity to refine their writing skills through conducting research and drafting documents commonly encountered in the practice of law, with particular attention to best practices in both the style and mechanics of persuasive writing. This might include documents such as opinion or demand letters, complaints, and motion briefs. Students also begin to develop their topic proposals for their capstone legal writing project, the Rigorous Writing Exercise.
