Advanced Legal Writing and Research

Course Number:

Credit Hours:
2 Credit Hours

Prerequisites: RCC*. This course will be structured around three substantial writing assignments modeled after the kinds of writing tasks demanded of lawyers. The writing component will involve both objective and persuasive writing. While reinforcing the analytic skills developed in the first year writing course, the course will focus less on the mechanics of legal analysis and document construction and more on varied techniques for effective writing. The research component of the course will require students to perform the research necessary for two of the course’s major writing assignments, including statutory and case research tools, legislative history and administrative law research. Satisfies third semester of legal writing requirement.
