Clinical Legal Writing Program

A vital and dynamic part of the University of Baltimore School of Law's Clinical Program is the Clinical Legal Writing Program. This unique program, created and directed by Professor Cheri Wyron Levin (known as the "Writing Doctor"), integrates the teaching of writing into the clinical program.

Students participate in interactive seminars about legal writing topics, such as letter writing and pleading and discovery drafting, taught by Levin. She works one on one with students on specific pieces of writing that they are preparing for their cases. Clinic students receive "Prescriptions for Healthy Writing," a series of mini-articles about various writing issues and problems compiled by Levin. She also assists other clinic faculty on complex and challenging clinic cases.
