This writing group will focus on topics related to the federal courts course. Anything related to a topic prominently covered in the Hart & Wechsler casebook is within scope.
This year-long writing group will have the following basic schedule. We will meet several times in the fall term to learn about how to write and publish scholarship, and how to find good topics to write about. Students in the fall will also choose a topic and present a proposed paper thesis. Students will then spend several months writing the paper, with individual feedback as necessary. Then we will reconvene starting in March to present and comment on one another’s drafts.
