The Legal Research & Writing Program
Legal Research & Writing introduces first-year students to the fundamentals of legal analysis, writing, research, citation, and advocacy. Over the course of two semesters, students learn to solve legal problems through a series of progressively more complex assignments. Through these assignments, students begin to develop several important lawyering skills, including analyzing and synthesizing case law, interpreting statutes, finding and selecting appropriate authorities, distinguishing between material and immaterial facts, applying the law to fact scenarios in predictive and persuasive formats, and communicating their analyses effectively.
