Second & Third Years

Upper Level Writing Requirement

 

In the second and third years, students complete an upper level writing requirement. This requirement allows students to develop advanced lawyering skills in a field that is of particular interest. The requirement may be satisfied by taking a doctrinal seminar course or a professional skills course, by working on a Moot Court brief or law review note, or by completing an independent study project.

 

In addition, students may further develop their lawyering skills by taking an advanced legal research course or a course designed to improve rhetorical skills such as Law and Literature or Appellate Advocacy.
