Writing Center

Throughout law school and your professional career, you must communicate with clarity and precision. The Writing Center helps law students strengthen their writing skills via:

  • Individual Tutorials. Available by appointment, tutorials emphasize professional level writing skills that include self-editing and revision, as well as word choice, grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
  • Pre-Publication Consultation. We offer editing advice on manuscripts that are being prepared for publication.
  • Small-Group Workshops. Students learn and apply techniques for effective writing.
  • Online Access. Students may e-mail questions concerning writing assignments or personal writing projects, as well as schedule appointments at any time.
  • Under the direction of Ann L. Nowak, Esq., the Writing Center’s staff of Teaching Assistants – upper level students who have demonstrated excellence in writing as well as in legal studies – help students learn how to create and complete a well-honed work product in which they can take pride.

    There is a limit to what Writing Center TAs may offer, however:

  • The Writing Center staff does not proofread or copyedit work. The Writing Center staff does not "correct" papers.
  • The Writing Center staff does not discuss substantive issues in work students will hand in for a class.
  • For further information, email us or call 631.761.7182.
