Legal Writing at Chicago-Kent

Chicago-Kent's pioneering, three-year Legal Research and Writing Program, founded in 1978, has been emulated at law schools across the country. At Chicago-Kent, first-year legal writing classes are taught by full-time faculty members who offer one-on-one feedback, and students get practical experience writing legal documents and using the technological tools that lawyers rely on in their careers. 

Watch Professor Kari Aamot Johnson and Professor Douglas Godfrey discuss how the first-year legal writing curriculum at Chicago-Kent prepares students to become successful attorneys.
