This intensive, 2-day course (5.75 hours each day) covers two broad legal-writing topics. Day one covers mechanics: the most common grammar, punctuation, word-usage, and stylistic mistakes law students and lawyers make and how to understand them, avoid them, and fix them. Key goals are to strengthen your writing credibility and raise your writing IQ. Day two covers broader concepts: concision, persuasion, organization, and revision, as well as some citation and transactional drafting. The course requires pre-class reading and work, overnight work, and a final written project. Pass-fail.
