Legal Scholarship Workshop

This two-semester workshop is designed for students interested in developing into a publishable article either new research or an existing paper in need of substantial revision. In the fall, it will be run as a faculty mini-workshop for scholars (mostly younger professors and fellows in the Chicago area) to present their work, allowing the class to comment on their scholarship and learn about presentation skills. In preparation for each meeting, some students will submit two-page critiques of the author's paper, about 5-6 in total for each student. In the one-credit Spring Semester, the class will function as a workshop for students in the seminar, enabling them to present their own existing research papers from independent research or other courses. The professor may work with each student to get his or her piece into publishable shape. In addition to JD students, also encouraged to enroll are JD/PhD students, LLM students, and members of Northwestern's Law Scholars Program, especially if they are interested in teaching or in becoming active participants in a scholarly workshop, since they will have extensive opportunities to speak and to hone their skills in critiquing legal argument
