This course is restricted to upper division students only.

This course is a broad survey of three main types of legal writing:  objective analysis, persuasive analysis, and transactional drafting.  The course will also cover many other topics crucial to high-level professional writing:  use of forms, advanced legal citation, the plain English movement, advanced grammar and punctuation, document design, legal usage, and editing.  Students will receive some individual critiques of their writing, and lectures will use model answers and sample critiques and will make use of group work.
