Honors Writing Scholars Seminar

Law 400



Writing Experience (WE)



This seminar is for students whom faculty in the Writing and Learning Resources Center selected during the preceding spring, through a competitive application process, to serve as teaching assistants for a foundational, two-semester set of first-year courses: Research, Reasoning, Writing, and Advocacy ("RRWA") I and II. The course addresses concepts and practices of teaching legal research, reasoning, writing, and advocacy—all of which build on a foundation of professionalism. Participants also explore and practice effective ways to comment on students' work. The seminar is especially beneficial for students who are interested in judicial clerkships, teaching posts, or positions that require mentoring or supervising of other attorneys.


Completion of RRWA I and II (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.
