Legal Writing Program

Mercer Law's Legal Writing Program prepares students with the essential legal research and writing skills they need to be prepared to practice right after graduation. We're proud to have the nation's preeminent Legal Writing Program and to serve as the host school for the Legal Writing Institute, a national organization for legal writing experts. We offer more courses in the essential skills of legal research and writing than most law schools and the nation's first Certificate in Advanced Legal Writing, Research, and Drafting. Employers recognize that when they hire a Mercer Law graduate, they are hiring a lawyer who is highly trained in these skills.
