LAW - 849 Legal Drafting


(2-3 hrs.)

Has two primary focuses. First, it teaches the principles of preparing transactional (i.e., nonlitigation) documents. Students can expect to draft several contracts of varied length and subject matter. Second, the course provides opportunities for students to draft litigation pleadings, such as a complaint or an answer, to which they are not exposed in Legal Rhetoric (Legal Method). The emphasis is on hands-on exercises and individualized critique of student work. Prerequisite: Legal Rhetoric: Writing and Research I and II. Keith, Spratt, Risoleo, S.
