Full-time legal writing faculty introduce students to legal analysis, research, writing, and citation. During the first course, students learn to brief cases, analyze and synthesize legal authorities, apply the authorities to a new set of facts, and write multiple, predictive office memoranda. In the second course, students begin learning both text and online research skills, and develop their analytical and editing skills in the context of trial court briefs. During both courses, legal writing faculty provide detailed written comments on students’ work. (This is the first of two Legal Research and Writing courses)
