Schedule Appointment

Students who are struggling with legal writing either in the first-year program or in an upper-level writing segment or advanced writing course are encouraged to schedule a meeting with our Legal Writing Specialist, Professor Diana Howard. Professor Howard schedules individual appointments with students to improve a student’s writing skills and to help with writing assignments. She works closely with our legal writing professors and our substantive course professors to ensure that she is familiar with the writing assignments as well as expectations of each professor. By being “plugged in” to all of the writing assignments at the College of Law, Professor Howard is in a unique position to help students achieve their maximum potential with respect to legal writing throughout law school.


NOTE: For help with a specific writing assignment, please bring a copy of the assignment and your drafts, if any, to the appointment.
