Honors Writing Scholars Seminar

Law 400



Writing Experience (WE)



This seminar prepares Honors Writing Scholars, pre-selected through a competitive application process, to serve as teaching assistants for a two-semester, foundational first-year course: Research, Reasoning, Writing, and Advocacy. Participants will examine relevant theories and practices of teaching. They also will explore and practice effective ways to critique students' work. Finally, participants will help develop assignments. Students would especially benefit from the seminar if they are interested in judicial clerkships, teaching posts, or positions that require mentoring or supervising of other attorneys.


Completion of RRWA (LAW 295 and LAW 296) with strong grades (generally A- or better) plus participation in a competitive application process during the spring semester that precedes enrollment in the seminar.
