The legal writing course has been certified of quality by Unitar. The ability to write correctly and clearly is the basis on which clients will assess a person`s professional skills. Thus, lawyers must master precise legal writing to advance their careers. Any document you draft must demonstrate that you are a professional, clear, competent and accurate lawyer. There are two versions of this LBC legal writing course. The first is the live streaming course with fifteen lessons of forty-five minutes each, followed by written assignments with individual feedback from the trainer. The second version is provided in a set of 60 recorded videos, each approximately 12 minutes long, followed by interactive exercises after each lesson. The recorded course is for full-time lawyers with changing work habits who cannot engage in the 45-minute live broadcasts. Both courses provide the crucial skills to write clear, concise and concise documents, letters and contracts. This seminar is designed to strengthen and ensure mastery of the legal writing skills originally taught in legal research and writing.
Students design a variety of documents based on a unique fact model, including emails, a memo between offices, a customer letter, and an application. Students will fill out several drafts of papers, meet in groups and individually with the teacher to discuss specific drafts, and participate in peer editing of their classmates` articles, with the aim of improving their own writing and editing. This seminar, taught by a former lawyer, will familiarize students with some of the key legal documents and processes that govern administrative rule-making procedures. Throughout the semester, students advise a high-tech «client» throughout the lifecycle of rule development, including participating in notification and comment procedures and considering whether to appeal the agency`s decision. Students will communicate with their clients, advise on important policy decisions, and create sample documents produced daily by regulatory lawyers. Occasional guest lecturers give students a particular insight into the practice of administrative law. This seminar, taught by a former law fellow and practicing lawyer, will write intensively, with a focus on agreements and other documents at the heart of a transactional transactional practice. The seminar gives students the opportunity to design customer communication, deconstruct and reassemble different types of agreements, and examine them in the context of a complex transaction.
The seminar will examine both design and examination techniques. Although the context of the seminar overlaps with Professor Teitelbaum`s course Deals: The Economics of Structuring Transactions, the aim of the seminar is to provide students with professional writing skills that they will use in future practice. The law is history. This seven-week course focuses on how to tell this story convincingly on behalf of a client. We will draw on science in rhetoric, applied legal storytelling, cognitive science, and design to understand why stories are so powerful. This science and real-world examples of narratives that grow and attract their audience will also help us build our own toolkits to build compelling narratives. As part of the course, we will use these tools to create compelling narratives in different genres (written and visual) and for different audiences (legal and non-legal). This course is designed to prepare members of legal journals for a distinctly different and, in many cases, more demanding nature of their responsibilities during their second year of journaling. It focuses on two aspects: helping students develop excellent editing techniques in the context of publishing and helping students master other aspects of joining a second-year journal, including journal management, timely publication, and author-editor interactions. During the course, students analyze scholarly writing from the editor`s perspective, covering topics such as article selection, large and small editions, style judgments, and analytical accuracy. By studying scientific articles written for publication, students will discuss how to edit them to achieve the best balance between the author`s intent, readers` needs, and the journal`s production needs. Students will also complete several individual and group assignments focused on specific editing challenges.
The class will meet in four three-hour sessions, and attendance will be required to receive credit. The written assignment consists of several short writing assignments to be completed between classes, as well as a longer assignment that students design throughout the semester. Students are evaluated based on the quality of their written work and after attending classes. As the class meets only seven times during the semester, participation in each session is mandatory. The ability to design clearly and concisely is a fundamental skill for lawyers in any area of legal practice. This two-credit seminar offers students the opportunity to develop their design skills as part of a hypothetical simple business transaction: the acquisition of a small business. Students will review, design and revise documents typical of this type of transaction. Since it is important to understand the purpose of the different provisions of an agreement in order to be able to design clearly and in the best interest of a client, part of the courses will be dedicated to understanding the content of documents from a content point of view. Laurel Oates, a professor at Seattle University School of Law, will teach international lawyers and lawyers the skills needed to design and communicate effectively in this online course. The principles of legal writing can help you become familiar with creating legal texts, no matter who you are or whatever your background.
One day you will be confronted with legal writing, and this course is aimed at students interested in studying law. In addition, it is useful for those who are interested in improving their technical and analytical writing skills. Law students are expected to draft and edit a variety of legal documents by exposing them to transactional documents, litigation, and journalistic and academic articles on legal issues. The main objective of the course is to teach people how to effectively read, analyze and write about the law. Students also learn to present a case, the basics of legal citation, read a law, and study important schools of legal analysis and argumentation. There are many types of legal drafting, and while it is a task, good legal drafting should never be legal. This instructor is Franklin J. Schwarzer, who is affiliated with Harvard Extension School and the Harvard Division of Continuing Education.
Introduction to Writing Scholarly Notes helps students discover, understand, experiment, and complete the process of writing academic notes. Based on a proven five-step writing process (reflection, preparation, execution, refinement and finishing), this course is designed to guide students from idea development to publication. The class meets seven times during the semester at intervals that follow the writing process. Teaching topics include brainstorming ideas, topic selection, and essay development; scientific research; organization and design; and revision, editing and polishing. Assignments include readings on relevant topics, writing assignments related to your scientific project, and contributions to workshop courses. At least two of the class meetings are designed as work-in-progress sessions where students can give and receive feedback on their scientific project. The Legal Writing course is designed for law students and students who are considering a law school or writer who wish to improve their analytical writing. This course is based on the assumption that good legal writing communicates well-thought-out ideas in a clear, concise and accurate manner.
Students can use the elements of good writing to build legal arguments, argue from precedents and principles, and use the facts effectively. Drafting a variety of basic legal documents is an important skill for people in the legal professions and could include a case description, complaint, response, expert opinion letter, legal memorandum, and law. The material of the legal writing course may be based on current social issues related to the areas of due process, criminal law, domestic relations law and the right to privacy. The instructor of this course is Rosemary Daly, Associate Professor of Law and Director of Advocacy Programs at Boston College Law School. Writing is the most important skill of a lawyer, and developing this skill is a lifelong process. In this course, you will learn the techniques used by the best legal writers in the world. You will learn to choose the right words, organize your thoughts and convey your arguments in the most accurate and concise way possible. To this end, we will study modern style guides, improve erroneous examples from court records, and draft a variety of legal documents. The course will provide detailed feedback that will help you grow as a writer, regardless of your current skills. The written assignment consists of several short writing assignments to complete between lessons and a longer task that requires both an initial draft and a final draft. Written assignments are also used during lessons for peer review and commentary purposes.
Students are evaluated on the basis of the quality of their written work (50 points together for short assignments, 60 points for the longer task), participation (20 points) and attendance (20 points).
