Writing Resource Center

Write Now. Write Forever.

Welcome to the Writing Resource Center (WRC)! The WRC supports UIC Law School and the Lawyering Skills program in developing strong and skilled legal advocates. At the WRC, we believe that that if law students learn to Write Now, and hone those skills throughout law school, they will Write Forever, and be equipped to effectively draft for the bar exam and the practice.

Let’s be honest, transitioning to legal drafting is challenging and requires students to trust the process. The good thing is that the WRC is here for all students, every step of the way. We offer a welcoming, inclusive environment where students can be comfortable with sharing their experiences, asking questions, and getting the support they need. Through our individual coaching sessions, conducted by professionals, students can brainstorm, discuss an assignment, seminar paper, or research paper, or use the session to improve a specific skill.

We look forward to working with you!
