Upper-Level Writing Requirement

All JD students must fulfill the Upper-Level Rigorous Writing Requirement. There are specific deadlines you need to be aware of for the Upper-Level Rigorous Writing Requirement. Students can read the rule outlining the requirements and the deadlines here.

To have a piece of writing evaluated to fulfill this graduation requirement, please submit theĀ Upper-Level Rigorous Writing Requirement Form. You may use writing from a class, clinic, or co-op. Please feel free to redact sensitive client information, as necessary.

Please note: You may not use the same course to satisfy both the Experiential Education Requirement and the Upper-Level Writing Requirement. Meaning, you may not use a paper written in a course for your Experiential Education Requirement to also satisfy your Upper-Level Writing Requirement.
