Legal Writing Program
Seattle University School of Law has set the standard for legal writing programs for more than 30 years and consistently has one of the country’s top-ranked legal programs. It was one of the first law schools to establish a three-year legal writing curriculum, use the process approach to teaching legal research and writing, and have a full-time writing advisor.
Known for their innovative, practice-oriented legal writing curriculum and cutting-edge use of teaching technology, Seattle University’s legal writing professors are dedicated teachers and nationally known authors. Faculty members have published six books and countless articles about legal writing and research. They also founded the Legal Writing Institute, a 2,200-plus member organization that has worked to foster the development of legal writing in law schools across the country and in numerous foreign countries. As recognized leaders in their field, faculty members have taught legal writing in Russia, India, Uganda, Kenya, and South Africa.
