Why take this course?

  • How you analyze, explain, and write about rules may be the most powerful legal writing tool in your arsenal. Data shows that sophisticated rule analysis determines the outcome of many legal matters. Indeed, poor rule analysis consistently ranks as the single biggest complaint judges have about lawyers.

    Luckily for you, we’ve been developing this legal analysis course for years. We'll
     start by working through new ways of looking at rules and how you analyze them. We then dive into several discrete techniques, like how to subtly counter opposing arguments, strategies for making citations and other clunky rules flow, and powerful tools for framing, highlighting, and more.

    By the end of this course, you will be able to stand apart from your colleagues, impress your audiences, and reach a new level of rule craft.

What people are saying

Write.law is an outstanding platform. It is accessible, resource-rich, affordable, and—dare I say it—fun. I use it to compliment my college and professional development legal writing courses—and to improve my own writing skills. Write.law's videos, checklists, and cheat sheets are invaluable.

As a nontraditional ESL student, legal writing was always a struggle for me. But Professor Regalia and Write.law gave me the tools and motivation I needed to improve. Thanks to Write.law's innovative approach, I improved my legal writing and am now an intellectual property associate at a top U.S. law firm.
