Description

This workshop provides students the opportunity to prepare a paper for publication by teaching the mechanics of structuring an academic paper and the basics of how to submit for publication. The instructor will review how to structure an academic legal argument, framing the topic, source citation, and the basics of article submission. In addition, the class will utilize peer editing to help students improve their writing through the process of giving and receiving feedback based on the topics covered by the instructor. The objective of the workshop is to prepare a paper for publication either as a student note or a post-graduation article. As such, students are required to have a solid draft paper prior to enrollment. It can be a seminar paper or a draft student note.
