(sessions held in professors’ offices)
Assistant Dean Paula Kaldis
Although writing classes are small, and students can ask for help from their instructors, MSLAW has recognized that this might not be enough for some students. Therefore, the school has a Writing Lab, where students can solicit extra help with particular writing problems they might have. Staffed by MSLAW writing professors, the Lab has established hours where students can drop in as desired. Students may receive help in any writing area from grammar to organization to legal analysis, but they may not use the Lab professors as copyeditors or proofreaders. Students may solicit help with already submitted and graded work as a means of improving or understanding their weaknesses.
In addition to offering assistance to all students, The Writing Lab, in coordination with Assistant Dean Paula Kaldis, and the Academic Resource center, also participates in a mandatory academic assistance program for students on probation.
Students can email the Writing Lab professors for an appointment or drop in during the following times:
Monday, 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Tuesday, 3:00 – 6:00 p.m.
Wednesday, 12:30 – 3:30 p.m.
