Abstract:     
U.S. law schools continue to admit an ever-increasing number of students from other countries, including students whose first language is not English. This short article describes the brutal choices that writing directors must sometimes make when serving these these students. The article considers five essential points when designing writing and research programs for international students: (1) assess the needs of your international students; (2) set reasonable goals; (3) find appropriate course materials; (4) evaluate the course and have students evaluate it as well; and (5) document the need to support additional resources for international students.
