Law School Writing Center

The Law School Writing Center provides law students with individualized, professional writing help at no charge. The Writing Center advises on issues of mechanics, clarity, and sentence structure. We do not assist in analyzing substantive legal issues. We do encourage students to become stronger legal writers by taking an active part in the consultation and revision process.
