Writing Assignment Idea (for Advanced Writing Classes)

Professor Ellen S. Podgor, who is the Associate Dean for Faculty Development & Distance Education at Stetson University College of Law, posted on the Law School Innovation Blog about her experience in having students write amicus briefs for pending U.S. Supreme Court cases. (The briefs were a class project, not to be filed with the U.S. Supreme Court.) Read more about her experience.

The idea of having students do amicus briefs for pending cases could also be done with other state and federal appellate courts. There are lots of possibilities here for advanced writing classes.
