Judicial Clerkship Writings

Law 491



Rigorous Writing Experience (RWE)



This class is designed primarily for students interested in or pursuing judicial clerkships. Students will critically examine various models of legal reasoning and case resolution and will engage in detailed opinion studies that consider reasoning, substance, tone, and style. Through in-class exercises and out-of-class writing assignments, students will develop their skills in synthesizing arguments and drafting clear and persuasive judicial opinions. Grades will be based on class participation, in-class drafting exercises, and two out-of-class writing assignments.
