We had a closed memo, a rewrite of the closed memo, an open memo, several non-graded library research exercises, a non-graded client letter, and a 50 question research exam. Next semester I hear we have to do a motion for summary judgment, another motion, and an oral argument before judges/prof/alumni/class on the summary judgment motion. I didn't mind the actual work so much, but it really took a lot of time away from outlining, other classwork, etc. I don't agree with the due dates because we had an open memo due the day before Thanksgiving and I couldn't at that time devote my time to outlining and final prep because of that. I don't understand why our final is this oral argument in the spring because it is legal "writing" not a legal advocacy class. Anyone else have this requirement and know why it is considered to be part of the legal writing class?
