Legal Writing is 2 units at my school and I was wondering if the legal writing grade is considered as "important" as the other classes. I mean besides it being less units than a class like torts, is Legal Writing considered to be equal to the other classes or less important?
But the other thing I hear is that learning legal research and writing is really important but that the class doesn't do the trick. What really educates law students is actually doing legal research your first summer. Therefore legal research is our most useful 1L skill, but the class is far from the most useful. IMO
