Abstract

Teaching legal writing online seems like something that would be impossible. But it can be effective, and has been done well. Teaching contract drafting online is a newer challenge, and presents particular difficulties. This article describes how to convert a writing based “ground class” to an online class generally, and describes the process one faculty member went through to convert a contract drafting class to an online class. The article is based on presentations made by the authors at the Transactional Law Teaching Conference, sponsored by Emory Law School.
