Writing: Electronic Discovery
This two-credit-hour advanced writing course will help prepare students for the types of writing that are common to all civil litigation, while introducing them to electronic discovery. Because most lawsuits now involve electronic discovery, understanding the financial, organizational, and ethical challenges it poses is critical to today’s practitioners. Writing assignments will all surround one hypothetical federal lawsuit that raises electronic discovery issues common to most civil litigation. Students will be associates in a hypothetical law firm and will handle the electronic discovery aspects of the firm’s defense of the lawsuit.
Priority in registering for this course is given to J.D. students, specifically those who have not yet fulfilled the upper-level writing requirements. LLM students are allowed to enroll if fewer than fourteen J.D. students enroll.
