Seminar in Jurisprudence
L797 is taught by Conrad
This Seminar will emphasize basic skills training in the drafting and revision of formal expository prose. The principal course textbook will be one that offers a relatively accessible introduction to the field of Anglo-American philosophy of law. But the course will also make use of manuals for self-help in the improvement of writing skills. Every student will be required to give a prepared in-class presentation on one of the chapters in the principal textbook. And every student will be required to submit#at the midpoint of the semester#a first draft of a thematic essay on that chapter. This essay assignment will call for some research beyond the HANDBOOK, but research far less extensive that the research typically required at our School for a law journal Note or for a typical Seminar writing project.
