J.D. Course 514 | 1 credit hours
Introduction to Scholarly Note Writing assists students in discovering, understanding, and experiencing the scholarly note writing process. Based on a proven five-stage writing process (Thinking, Preparing, Executing, Refining, and Finishing), this course is designed to take students from idea-development to publication. The class meets seven times during the semester at intervals that track the writing process. Areas considered include idea brainstorming, topic selection, and thesis development; scholarly research; organization and drafting; and revision, editing, and polishing. Assignments will include readings on relevant topics, writing assignments related to your note, and contributions to workshop classes.
