Event description

This Autumn session, the Faculty of Law at UTS is pleased to announce our inaugural Juris Doctor Legal Writing Skills Workshop. We will cover a whole of topics that relate to assessments, writing essays, case notes, responding to problem questions, academic language and academic integrity. Specifically, come along to learn more about:

  • Decoding assessment task wording, criteria and rubrics;
  • Different types of writing required for law assessments e.g. essays, short answer problems, critical case notes, statutory interpretation research exercises, legal problem advices and using the IRAC (issue, rule, application and conclusion) method
  • Style, register and grammar for writing university assessments;
  • What is academic integrity and what do you need to keep in mind.

The workshop will be delivered by Deb Nixon, who works with the Academic Language and Learning team at UTS. The deliver has been designed with 1st year UTS law assessments in mind but is suitable for students at any stage of their JD program. The workshop will not cover legal content. Rather, our focus will be on the skills needed to apply the legal knowledge you have obtained in class in your assessments.

To attend, please RSVP here for numbers and to enable Deb to design the workshop to your needs. Please direct any questions to A/Prof Ramona Vijeyarasa, Juris Doctor Program Head (
