Legal Writing Fellows (LWFs) are second- and third-year law students who work with first-year students under the supervision of the Legal Analysis Research & Writing faculty.

LWFs hold office hours in the Legal Writing Center to help with skills such as case briefing and synthesis, statutory interpretation, legal research, writing style and organization, and citation form. LWFs may also provide feedback on short, ungraded writing and research assignments. LWFs typically attend many LARW classes and assist with small-group exercises. They are led by a Student Director, who coordinates office hours and other activities.
