Center for the Study of Written Advocacy

The mission of the Center for the Study of Written Advocacy is to advance the discipline of legal writing, and more specifically, the practice of professional legal advocacy by producing, facilitating, and promoting research and scholarship that explores the substance, procedure, and ethics of written legal advocacy. In addition to supervising student research assistants, the Center hosts a variety of activities including scholarly writing workshops, continuing legal education presentations, and legal writing conferences.

With the emphasis of writing skills in the legal profession, the Center boasts nationally recognized Legal Writing Professors that establish the University of Wyoming College of Law as a leading institution in legal writing and research, and provide exceptional legal writing instruction to law students.
