Judicial Clerkship Writings

Law 491



Rigorous Writing Experience (RWE)



This class is designed primarily for students interested in or already pursuing judicial clerkships after graduation.  Students will track the life cycle of an appeal from initial briefing through final opinion and beyond.  Through in-class exercises and out-of-class writing assignments, students will learn about the behind-the-scenes mechanics of an appellate court and develop their skills in synthesizing arguments and drafting clear and complete bench briefs, judicial opinions, and more.  Grades will be based on class participation and three out-of-class writing assignments.
