ADVANCED WRITING AND REVISION SEMINAR
(LAWW-4034) - 1 UNIT

'There is no great writing, only great rewriting.' - Justice Brandeis.

Editing separates the great briefs from the mediocre ones. This seminar will give participants the opportunity to learn and practice the advanced revision and editing techniques to take their writing to the next level?from mediocre to great. Students will read about and discuss the best practices in revision and editing; and will work on perfecting their writing at the word, sentence and paragraph level. However, the main focus of the course will be practicing revision. Participants will bring pieces of their own writing (or writing in progress)?draft articles, briefs, memos, writing samples, even cover letters--to class and will have the opportunity for one-to-one feedback with the professor to edit and revise the writing.
