The Advanced Legal Writing course engages participants in advanced exercises in legal writing, including objective and persuasive writing, such as opinion and demand letters, client email, and internal memoranda. The goal of the course is to deepen a participant’s command of the writing process and to expand their ability to develop, structure, and write grammatically correct legal texts for a variety of writing purposes and audiences. Writing practice is basic to writing improvement, so participants should expect to have written assignments to prepare prior to class sessions. Additionally, another key to improving writing skills involves reading the writing of others to offer a careful response to the text, so you can expect to do peer reviews of participant writing, as well as analyze written documents from the United States. Plain English rules will be explained and followed during the course. The Advanced Legal Writing course assumes an upper intermediate to advanced level of English.
