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.
Conferences will be held in Room W-126 (Academic Success and Bar Exam Resource Center). The writing assistants will be available at the following times: Mondays noon-4 p.m., Tuesdays noon-2 p.m., Wednesdays 4:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m., Thursdays 4:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. and Fridays 8:30 a.m.-noon.
The 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.
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.
