Curriculum

Litigation Drafting

B564 is taught by

Using a hypothetical personal injury case, students will work on drafting and revising litigation documents such as demand letters, pleadings, discovery requests, motions and briefs in the trial court, and evaluation letters to the client. In addition to drafting documents, students will edit the drafts of other students. The course will focus on three areas: general rules of good legal writing; principles for drafting different litigation documents; and developing editing skills. We will discuss the drafts and revisions in class and in individual sessions.
