The Writing Center
The Writing Center helps students transition to the legal discourse community and supports the Law Center's goal of developing strong legal writers across the curriculum.
Under the direction of a full time faculty member, The Writing Center is staffed by trained upper-level students known as Senior Writing Fellows who engage writers in a collaborative process. Through interactive, individualized conferences, the Writing Center provides all members of the Georgetown Law community with feedback on the writing process and written work.
Students may make appointments to discuss questions they have on a writing assignment in any class at Georgetown, a journal note, or a writing project in conjunction with an extracurricular activity. Students, however, may not submit privileged, confidential or work product material drafted in connection with a summer job, internship or externship without first obtaining the express permission of their supervising attorney.
Senior Writing Fellows at the Writing Center can offer a number of techniques to address the writing process, whether in a scholarly paper, practical piece for a clinic, or assignment in the first year course.
