Second- and third-year students who distinguish themselves as strong writers, thinkers and mentors may be selected to serve as Classroom Writing Fellows. This experiential course implements the “see one, do one, teach one” model, with students learning and cementing key professional skills by helping to teach other students.

Classroom Writing Fellows serve as teaching assistants for the professors in the 1L Legal Research, Analysis, and Communication course. These fellows prepare and deliver instructional materials, provide feedback on student drafts and mentor 1L students. The fellows not only learn by teaching, they also receive instruction in learning theory, effective feedback techniques, management techniques, leadership theory and advanced writing skills.

Senior Writing Fellows work closely with faculty on research, writing and other projects to support the program.
