ENG 350 Advanced Legal Writing: Advocacy and Oral Argument

3 hours 

This advanced legal writing course builds on the analytical and rhetorical skills learned in ENG 250 and focuses on the forms of persuasive argument. Students will apply the rule-, analogy-, and policy-based legal reasoning skills acquired in ENG 250 to analyze, critique and argue within and against the inherent moral and conceptual contradictions in the law. Students will learn and practice the organizational skills, analytical methods, rhetorical conventions, and persuasive strategies that determine effective advocacy.
