Assistant Dean Paula Kaldis
MSLAW Writing Lab Sessions will meet in the Demosthenes Writing Room (located next to Professor Armano and Rodriguez in back of library)
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 utilizes the assistance of writing directors from the three required writing courses, so that students can solicit extra help with particular writing problems they might have.
Students may receive help in any legal research and writing area from grammar to organization and types of legal authority, but they may not use the professors as copyeditors or proofreaders. The writing sessions may also be used as a way to 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 professors, in coordination with Assistant Dean Paula Kaldis, also participate 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:
