Proofreading checklist for law school papers, notes, and comments
June 13, 2008 at 8:39 AM
A new article entitled, "Training Independent Learners: Student Self-Editing Checklist for Law School Papers, Notes and Comments" is now available on SSRN. Written by faculty at the University of Missouri - Kansas City, the articles lists many of the most basic principles of good, clear writing and many of the most common flaws in students' papers. It requires the student to certify, by signing and noting the date and time, that the student has checked the paper for each of the points listed. This may be a great resource for students needing help with their editing skills.
