Legal Writing Tutoring Program

The Legal Writing Tutoring Program is open to all J.D. students.  The Program is directed by Susan Chung, who is the Legal Writing Coordinator and has taught Legal Writing for many years.

The tutoring sessions will assist students who are experiencing specific difficulties with legal analysis and structure, as well as writing style and composition.  Students will provide the tutor with a past writing assignment in advance of the tutoring sessions; the tutor cannot assist students with ongoing or current assignments.  During the sessions, the tutor and the student will identify specific writing issues and concerns, and discuss ways in which the student can revise the assignment.  The tutor may also provide additional writing exercises and writing samples to assist the student.  Each tutoring session will be between 30 to 45 minutes.

Professors should feel free to identify students who would benefit from tutoring services and suggest that they contact the Legal Writing Program.  Students may also contact the Legal Writing Program directly if they wish to receive tutoring services.  To receive tutoring services, please contact Emmy Huertas, Legal Writing Assistant, at ehuertas@law.fordham.edu or (212) 636-6942.
