Third-Year Day or Fourth-Year Evening Drafting Course

  • The Legal Drafting course is the capstone writing experience at Capital. The course is taught in small sections of 25 students and must be completed by students in their last year of law school. The curriculum in each section integrates theory with practice and exposes students to the types of documents frequently prepared in that area of practice.

    There are three standard drafting courses in the curriculum: Civil Litigation, Criminal Litigation, and Transactional. The litigation drafting courses are required to complete the concentrations in civil litigation or in criminal litigation, respectively. Drafting courses on additional topics, or tied to specific doctrinal courses, also are taught on a periodic basis.
