A Yale faculty member's take on legal writing at Yale

As the legal writing listserv's discussion about Yale’s post continues, Noah Messing, who teaches legal writing at Yale, MESSINGwrote about the positive features of the school's approach to the subject:

Yale features two passionate faculty members who teach writing full-time; doctrinal faculty who invest heavily in improving the legal writing of their first-year students; remarkable third-years who are carefully coached and who work tirelessly to help their first-year students; a slew of judges who train our students to write; Judge Walker’s meetings with small groups of students; heaps of elective writing courses that have space for everyone; and the chance for students, after one semester, to work on clinical projects under the close supervision of astounding lawyers.
