e-mail from Jeff Malkan to Tara Singer-Blumberg, April 13, 2011 re: LAWR and R&W course descriptions

From: Jeffrey Malkan Sent: Wednesday, April 13, 2011 11:15 AM To: Tara Singer-Blumberg ; Marilyn Raskin-Ortiz Subject: "LAWR" and "R&W" course descriptions

Hi Tara and Marilyn, The law school has posted the course descriptions for the fall 2011 semester. My course, Research & Writing (i.e., the defunct program) is finally re-titled as Legal Analysis, Writing, & Research (i.e., the new program!). The course description for LAWR (cute acronym, gag) however, is exactly the same as the one I provided to the registrar for R&W in 20 05. The course number is the same, too, L-515. fall 2005 -L-515 RESEARCH AND WRITING - Staff This course introduces the essential skills of legal analysis and writing. It is structured around several progressively more difficult cases for which students prepare client letters and predictive office memoranda that explain the relevant primary authorities and apply the law to the facts. As they address these projects, students learn to identify rules, standards and policies, to use deductive and analogical reasoning, and to read and interpret judicial opinions and statutes. Instructors closely supervise the preparation of course documents and provide detailed instruction in citation form and the conventions of legal writing. fall 2011 -L-515 LEGAL ANALYSIS, WRITING AND RESEARCH I Christine Bartholomew, Nan Haynes, Johanna Oreskovic, Chris Pashler, Stephen Paskey, Laura Reilly 4 credits This course introduces the essential skills of legal analysis and writing.
