Writing Center

The Writing Center is staffed by approximately 50 Writing Fellows, who are upper-level law students with strong writing and analysis skills. Writing Fellows are trained to work with writers at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming and outlining, to developing the structure of legal analysis, to publishing a near-finished product. The goal of each writing conference is to help student writers become skilled and critical readers of their own writing. Writing Fellows do not spell-check, grammar-check, cite-check, or proofread. Instead, they help students develop strategies for recognizing global problems in their work.
