Abstract:     
This article is based on a three-day workshop the author presented in July 2009 at the invitation of Seoul National University and the Korean Association of Law Schools. The workshop was designed to assist Korean law professors to develop and teach a legal writing course in the new graduate law schools. The goal of this article is to provide practical suggestions as a starting point for teaching legal writing in Korean law schools. The following topics are discussed in the article: the basics of teaching legal writing, including designing assignments and a course syllabus; teaching techniques; critiquing assignments; and conferencing with students. The article ends with some final thoughts and recommendations for Korean law schools.
