MSPL Legal Research and Writing – 5002

Fall 2020

This course covers the process of communicating about the law. Our goal is to teach students the building blocks of legal communication through multiple practice exercises so that students can repeat the process on their own after successful completion of the course. In the fall (one credit), we begin at orientation with a short exercise, then move on to email, letter, and office memorandum exercises written in an objective/predictive mode.
