This year-long seminar is designed for advanced law students who wish to develop and complete a full-length, high-quality legal article (or “comment”) of publishable quality in a collaborative setting (sometimes known as a “writing circle”). The seminar will meet 14 or 15 times for the entire academic year, and students will work together with each other and with the professor to identify, develop, and refine topics; and then to organize, draft, edit, and fine-tune a piece with an eye toward dissemination to a wide audience. The collaborative process will also include peer editing, pursuant to guidelines that will be jointly determined. Enrollment, by application, is limited to a maximum of 12-14.
The legal article that is completed for this seminar will satisfy the law school’s SAW writing requirement, and the seminar is open to all second and third-year students and all LLMs.
