The Legal Method and Writing program is an integral part of the JD curriculum at ASU Law. Our program is designed to ensure practice-ready students who are well-equipped to succeed when they begin externships, summer jobs, clerkships, and legal careers.
The Legal Method and Writing program includes two required first-year courses that lay the foundation for success in future writing experiences, including journals and moot court competitions. Indeed, ASU students have won numerous national writing awards. In addition to the first-year curriculum, the program offers a diverse selection of elective courses that enrich the writing experiences for students in their second and third years.
