The Winter Writing Program (WWP) is a great way to have time to focus exclusively on an Option 1 paper. Participants in the Winter Term Writing Program devote the winter term to the intensive research and/or writing of a paper under the supervision of a Law School faculty member or an instructor with a Harvard Law School teaching appointment. Participation in the program is in lieu of taking a Law School course for the winter term.

Please note: LL.M. students should visit the Graduate Program’s LL.M. Winter Term Writing page for more information, including requirements, processes, and deadlines.
