Law 780: Professional Business Law Writing I
SCHOOL OF LAW
Professional Business Law Writing I, II, and III are three separate courses. In each course, the student will draft three publishable 1,000- to 2,000-word commentaries, each on a different current development in business law, for a professional publication such as a state bar association magazine, state bar committee newsletter, or topical practitioner periodical. Students are typically expected to incorporate comments on and produce between five and 10 drafts for each commentary as a minimum condition of completing the course. The instructor will give a series of lectures on professional writing at times to be determined in coordination with enrolled students' schedules. The instructor will assign reading and may require students to complete assigned writing exercises. Completion of PBLW I, II, and III shall satisfy the upper-level writing requirement.
