Writing Skills

Lawyers do an enormous amount of writing. They draft correspondence, memoranda, briefs, contracts, wills, and other documents daily. Your law school education will prepare you for practice by requiring a demanding regimen of written composition. You are encouraged to prepare for law school by electing undergraduate courses that

  1. require substantial written work,
  2. provide a system in which the instructor regularly reviews and comments, and
  3. allow students to rewrite their written work. Also, foreign language study improves both your understanding of the world and your ability to read and write English.
