LAW E 500 Advanced Writing Project

Credits: 1-3, Variable
IndependentStudy

Students may earn 1-3 credits for participation in an independent research and writing project (which may be part of a group project) performed under the supervision of a faculty member to satisfy the Advanced Writing Project requirement. The project must be for a total of 3 credits if it is a project begun specifically to complete the Advanced Writing Requirement. It may be for less than 3 credits only if it involves revision of work begun in a class, externship, or moot court competition. The project will be structured to ensure that the student has experience working on a significant project that develops skills in research, analysis and writing. The project will focus on a topic agreed upon by the student and by the faculty member. Evaluation of student performance will be based upon the paper or papers produced in connection with the project and will be graded. The grade will be included in calculating the student’s grade-point average.
