Berkeley Boosts | Skills Lab: Providing Effective Feedback

April 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

We all know it when we see it: legal writing that meanders, obfuscates, and/or fails to deliver a coherent argument. And we recognize effective legal writing as well: it is organized, clear, concise, and well-supported. But assessing the quality of persuasive legal writing is only the first step to developing the skill in junior attorneys whom we supervise. How do we provide effective feedback – both positive and constructive – in a way that is likely to result in sustained improvement? How do we move from extensive line-editing to actually teaching writing? Please join us for a discussion with two experienced Berkeley Law clinicians, Mridula Raman and Ty Alper, both of whom work extensively on law students’ persuasive writing in the Berkeley Law Death Penalty Clinic.
