The Peer Writing Assistance Program is available to assist students struggling with law school related writing. Students may bring any law school project for review, including memoranda, class papers, law review articles or writing samples. Trained writing assistants will work with the student in developing or refining critical writing skills.

Student Writing Assistants
Where the writing under review is a class
assignment, writing assistants will only review the assignment after
having received permission from the faculty member who has assigned the
project. In addition, writing assistants will always follow any
limitations placed on the review by the assigning faculty member.
writing assistants will assist students in identifying problems with
their writing and then work with the students to develop a plan to
address those problems. Peer writing assistants are not editors and will
never give feedback on the substance of a paper.
To schedule an appointment, please contact Stephanie Minerley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
