As you think about whether to participate in a student journal, or take a seminar class with a writing requirement, you may want to get the benefit of other people's experiences. A variety of books in the law library can give you insights and are listed under the tabs in this Guide.
Points to Consider:
When writing on a topic in depth, for a seminar paper or a law review or journal note/article, a variety of considerations will contribute to success:
Defining a topic that has not been written upon.
Understanding both format and content requirements for the project.
Observing the rules of citation applicable to your project.
Comprehensively consulting appropriate resources in a thorough manner.
