Abstract:     
Using peer review in a first-year legal research and writing course has advantages. A peer review exercise encourages cooperation, puts students in the audience role, reinforces basic writing skills, and gives students experience with giving constructive feedback. This article provides information about designing an effective in-class peer review and reports how students responded to the exercise.
