LRW-Is this a real threat?
« on: October 09, 2009, 08:38:34 PM »
Maybe I am prone to anxiety but LRW is really producing a little sweat on the brow right about now.  Something to worry about?  Am I the only one that is prematurely worried right now on this?

Take it seriously if your school's LRW is graded. My LRW grade was a stain on my 1L transcript because I didn't. Don't just assume that you are a good writer (like I did) and think it will take care of itself.

At my school, Legal Writing is a 3-hour graded course...people take it very seriously around here.

If it's graded, take it seriously.

Even if not, don't blow it off...it's probably the most practical course you'll take 1L year, and doing it "well," getting plenty of feedback, improving your writing, etc., is invaluable.
