Intensive Legal Writing and Drafting (2) 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 precison of expression. Weekly writing assignments include a few fully drafted documents (e.g., short will, a short contract, a statue), as well as letters, short pleadings, jury instructions, and other short pieces. Students will concentrate on re-writing and editing their work.
