Effective legal writing forms a principal means for measuring legal skills. In particular, legal writing should clearly demonstrate how conclusions are reached, rather than being a mere summary of conclusions. This implies a grasp of grammar, legal text analysis, stylistic technique and structuring, plus proofreading and editing skills. This course enables students to improve and practice these skills while avoiding common errors using a variety of authentic legal texts in English language.
