Legal Writing

Colorado Law is committed to excellence in legal communication, as the ability to communicate effectively in writing is critical to the success of every attorney.  Legal writing is not an isolated skill, but an integrated part of the well-recognized task of learning to think like a lawyer.  Our goal is to equip students not only with strong essential legal communication skills but also with the flexibility to adapt and improve these skills once they enter the profession.
