Writing across the curriculum has long been an important subject for legal writing professors. Christy Hallam DeSanctis and Michael D. Murray have written a book on writing across the curriculum that includes problems and exercises for first-year and upper-division classes.
Abstract: This book contains research and writing problems, drafting problems, and writing in the law discipline problems with the goal of helping students to develop the skills necessary to practice law. Part 1 includes problems in each of the first-year subject areas: contracts, torts, civil procedure, criminal law, property, and constitutional law. Parts II, III, and IV present problems for each topic of a first-year legal research and writing course. Part V contains problems from upper-division courses such as remedies, copyright, right of publicity, and advanced constitutional law.
