Editing and Advocacy

A lot of cases are won in the editing phase, given that few first drafts are very polished or persuasive. This course will teach you how to excel at that phase. You'll learn how to tighten sentences and rearrange paragraphs. You'll learn how to spruce up dull headings and tame unwieldy quotations. And because many of the short, weekly assignments will focus on fine-tuning documents you'll need on the job market -- a writing sample, a cover letter, even your resume -- you'll also leave the course with a much stronger portfolio of material for potential employers. Most of all, though, you'll gain a set of tools and vocabulary designed to help you develop one of the most sought after traits in a lawyer: being good with words.
