  • "Legal research and writing was the most important course I took my first year to prepare me for my first job at a law firm.

Jesse Branner, Juris Doctor Candidate, 2013

    "While contracts, property, and torts are all important classes for passing the bar exam, Legal Research and Writing is vital for becoming a great lawyer. The Legal Research and Writing department develops specific skills that practicing attorneys utilize on a daily basis. Due to the integrated research assignments, hands-on teaching style, and practical writing assignments, I am well-prepared to enter any professional setting and confidently hand my supervisor top-quality work."  Corey Leggett, Juris Doctor Candidate, 2013 

    "Professor Blocher's first-year Legal Research & Writing course allowed me to hone a skill set that has served me well in subsequent years. While externing in federal court, my bench memoranda and opinion drafts were well received by the judge and his clerks. Later, while a summer associate at a large firm, I put to use the persuasive writing techniques that Professor Blocher taught us, and the partners were impressed." - Jason T. Gerken, Juris Doctor Candidate, 2013
