UB’s new Legal Writing Center opens for business

Claudia Diamond, the director of academic support, sends news about the law school’s brand-new Legal Writing Center:

This past week, the Legal Writing Center quietly opened its doors by serving nine students referred to us by their first-year faculty.

We are officially open for business.

Throughout September, Dr. Isabell May, the assistant director of writing services for the University, and I trained a group of Legal Writing Fellows on topics including grammar and syntax, organizational structure, ESL concerns, peer-instructor and writing-center pedagogy, and effective commenting techniques. We are fortunate to have an inaugural class of fellows who are exceptional. Their bios are here.

This effort is being funded as one-year project by the UB Foundation. Our success is dependent on serving students, so please direct them to the center! We are also advertising the center directly to the students.

Faculty: Please direct your students to the Writing Center’s webpage or have them email Isabell May directly (imay@ubalt.edu).
