Professor Leslie Garfield Tenzer

In this episode...

I speak with Sarah Morath, Clinical Associate Professor, Director of Lawyering Skills and strategies at The University of Houston Law Center, about drafting a scholarly article.  Most law schools have an upper-level writing requirement.  Expert Sarah Morath provides valuable insights to help you get the job done right!!

Some key takeaways...

1. Scholarly articles must have a legal "so what."  Be careful not to write an undergraduate thesis.
2. Footnotes for law review articles are different from those in a memorandum of law or appellate brief.  Use the main part of the Bluebook for reference.
3. Pick a topic that interests you, you will be with the topic for a long time.
