- This article is based on information shared at a workshop the author presented in July 2009 at the invitation of Seoul National University and the Korean Association of Law Schools. The information that formed the basis of this article is from a segment of the workshop that was designed to assist Deans and other administrators with responsibility for designing legal writing courses in Korean graduate law schools. Possible structures for legal writing programs, including the length of the program, general topics that might be included in a legal writing course and potential faculty models are discussed in this article. The advantages and disadvantages of each type of faculty model are noted. In addition, this article identifies potential resources for assisting legal writing professors, including teaching assistants, research assistants and research librarians. The most recent, publicly available data regarding the types of program structures and resources used in American legal writing programs is also incorporated in this article.
