Legal writing teachers have certain requirements that we feel must be met in each piece of student writing. Most significantly, we expect to see analysis that follows a predictable, logical pattern, whether it be IRAC, CREAC, or some variation thereon. However, not all of our students come to us fresh from undergraduate school; many arrive after, or even during, careers in which they have developed an effective writing style of their own. Our response to these students' writing should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the experiences that they bring to the classroom.
