It is not too early to begin thinking about your class options for the summer and fall terms. A copy of the schedule is attached.
For all students who are choosing to complete an Independent Research Project (IRP), we are offering two writing seminars in summer term 1.
1. WRI 7301 Advanced Writing Seminar
This seminar is designed to provide students with the opportunity to write a significant article or policy paper. Students conduct substantial and sophisticated research on a topic of their choosing. They receive extensive feedback on drafts of their paper throughout the course. Students also receive instruction on improving their writing through weekly, interactive exercises. By the end of this course, participating students will have produced a law-review worthy article or white paper. The course ends with students presenting their papers to their classmates. The Advanced Writing Seminar is designed to be a capstone course for students pursuing a Certificate or meeting their degree Project/Writing requirement.
This course satisfies:
The Project/Writing degree requirement for the MARJ, MERL, LLM in Energy Law, MFALP and the LLM in Food and Agriculture law degrees.
The Project/Writing requirement for Certificates in Dispute Resolution, Climate Law, Energy Law, Land Use Law, Water Resources Law, Criminal Law, Business Law and Food and Agriculture Law.
2. Narrative Writing Seminar (Course number not yet assigned)
Today, being an advocate requires more than knowing how to write a brief. Fluency in a variety of written forms – memorandums, op-eds, letters, emails, blog posts – is all but required. This course will cover these forms and others. Students will be graded on regular written assignments and a final paper.
This course satisfied the MARJ writing requirement.
We have a new online class for fall term 2 - ENV 5245 Water Resources Law, being developed by Prof. Jack Tuholske. We know how many of you have been eager for a water class, so this section will be limited to online students only.
