The mission of the Center for Legal Writing is to strengthen the legal writing weaknesses that hinder many students. Our goal is to help you develop strong and effective legal writing skills.

The Center for Legal Writing is designed to help you improve your legal writing skills during every stage of law school. First year students who utilize the Center work through the following:

  • Issue-spotting practice problems 
  • Graded practice problems
  • Writing exercises

Once you have completed the problem or exercise, a one-on-one tutorial session is scheduled. During the session, the director will assess your legal writing skills and work with you to create an individualized plan for improvement.

The Director of the Center for Legal Writing and the Director of Academic Support work closely to provide substantive review sessions that include practice problems for first-year students. These practice problems serve as a review for material that was covered during the session. This will help you apply the concepts covered during the review session.

Throughout your legal education at Liberty Law, the Center can assist you through one-on-one meetings. In addition, the centers for Legal Writing and Academic Support provide various workshops throughout the year to help you improve your basic writing and critical thinking skills. These are designed to help you prepare for the practice of law and the bar exam.
