Professional Writing Workshop

Course Number: LAW 6930 Credits: 2

This asynchronous online course focuses on grammar, punctuation, and style (using law-related materials). The objective is to give students the opportunity to learn to generate text, identify problems in their writing, and to evaluate and edit their writing. Students will read and study related materials and watch online lectures. Students will do weekly exercises in grammar and punctuation to help them learn the principles, plus short writing projects. We will also also discuss usage and (time permitting) rhetoric. It’s appropriate both for students who have trouble with writing and for anyone who just wants to refine his or her writing skills. The course is graded S/U.
