Legal Writing Tip Sheets

Writing Fellows past and present have created a variety of legal writing tip sheets designed to help students through various aspects of a legal writing assignment.

Tip sheets were created by students and may not represent the views of any particular LRW professor or the LRW program.

ESL Help

The George Washington University Language Center provides a wide range of academic support for both faculty and students. The Language Center houses the English for Academic Purposes Program (EAP) for enrolled GW students with non-English-speaking backgrounds. The EAP program helps non-native English speakers develop their research and writing skills.

The GW Writing Center offers one-on-one writing conferences in Gelman 103. The undergraduate and graduate tutors who staff the center are not familiar with legal writing specifically, but they are trained to work with writing of any discipline, and help writers improve clarity, organization, and style.
