Skills (Core)
Advanced Legal Writing and Advocacy (3 credits)
This two unit course builds on the first year Legal Research and Writing course. This class is designed to help students prepare for lawyering and to help students engage in different types of research, legal writing, and oral advocacy. Students will be required to write letters, legal memoranda, and motions which include legal points and authorities, and papers that are designed to help develop and present ideas on paper. Oral presentations will include impromptu exercises, as well as explanations for legal opinions and mock oral arguments in support of written memos and motions.
Legal Writing/Research I and II (6 credits)
This is a two-semester course divided between the spring and fall semesters. The spring semester (Legal Research) will focus mainly around introducing beginning students to legal research fundamentals, including use of hands-on and computer-assisted resources (Lexis and Westlaw), basic legal citation form, how to analyze and utilize precedents and other authorities, and how to write a predictive office memorandum. The fall semester (Legal Writing) will expound upon what students learned in the spring semester and also introduce students to more advanced legal reasoning, writing, and research. Students will be expected to write several memorandums, including a major memorandum of law in the latter part of the semester.
