This course builds on the fundamentals taught in first-year legal writing and exposes students to additional motions and other types of legal writing typically handled by law firm associates during pretrial litigation. Although the context of the course assignments is litigation, the course objective is to hone the legal writing skills you will need as a practicing attorney in any field, regardless of whether litigation is your focus. The course assignments and exercises follow the stages of a case from the pleadings through summary judgment.
