The goal of the California Law Review Publishing Workshop is to help CLR members produce a publishable casenote or comment by the end of their 2L year. Workshop participants will meet as a group for seven two-hour sessions (on alternating weeks) in Spring 2018; as individuals they will meet regularly with instructors on a mutually convenient schedule to be determined. To enroll, the CLR member must have completed a draft of a paper by the beginning of Spring Semester (January 1, 2018), preferably in conjunction with a writing seminar or a Law 299 individual writing program during the Fall 2017 semester. The student must also have attended the CLR Writing Program seminars in the Fall (contact the Senior Notes Editor, Grace Gohlke, for information on these). The instructors will supervise and facilitate the Workshop meetings, and will provide individualized feedback on each participant’s draft. Workshop activities will include examination of published (sample) notes, presentation of work by each participant to the group, and detailed responses by all participants to the work of peers. In addition, workshops will focus on key components of note composition, including titles, abstracts, claims-making and/or the statement of hypotheses and research questions, general stylistic issues, obstacles to revision, and the finalizing of drafts. Students will receive credit for the Workshop by producing a publishable note or comment, as determined by the instructor. To enroll in this course, students should turn in their draft paper to Grace Gohlke, CLR Senior Notes and Comments Editor, by January 1, 2018.
