Persuasive Legal Writing

Persuasive Legal Writing
In this intensive reading and writing course, students will practice writing persuasive arguments while analyzing contemporary legal issues. Readings will include state and/or federal court opinions governing the selected issues. Classroom discussion will focus on discussion of the readings and on the mechanics of clear and persuasive writing. Students will work together extensively, editing and revising one another's work, both in and out of class. Students will write (and rewrite) three papers, each written from a different perspective (e.g., prosecutor, plaintiff, or defendant). Students will also acquire a basic understanding of the way disputes are resolved within the U.S. legal system.
