FALL 2022 WRITING CENTER SCHEDULE INFORMATION:

The WC will open for the semester on September 6, and will be open through Wednesday, November 30. The WC is closed on weekends (except during Busy Weeks as noted below) and on days when the law school is closed (e.g., Labor Day, Thanksgiving break).

Students can make WC appointments up to 21 days in advance and are limited to one appointment per week. All WC appointments are either 30 or 45 minutes in length depending on the week. All appointments on the "Regular" WC schedule are 45 minutes in length, while appointments on the "Busy Weeks" schedules are 30 minutes in length. Busy Weeks take place in advance of major 1L writing assignments and the shorter appointment length is in place to allow the WC to accommodate as many students as possible.

The schedule for Busy Weeks for the fall semester is as follows: 

CIA Busy Week:  September 12-18

CRM Busy Week:  November 21-22, 28-30

To make an appointment during one of our Busy Weeks, please be sure to search for availability on the specific schedule for the dates in question. 

IN-PERSON APPOINTMENTS:

In Fall 2022, appointments scheduled for 7 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. on Monday-Thursday will take place in person. Appointments scheduled for 5:30 - 10:00 p.m. M-Th may take place virtually. All appointments on Fridays and weekend days will be conducted virtually.

WAITLIST:

If there are no available appointments that work for you, you can sign up to join a waitlist. If an appointment opens up, all students on the waitlist for that time period will receive an email and the appointment will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

SUBMITTING YOUR DRAFT:

If you want your Writing Fellow to review your draft before you meet in person, please email your draft (in .doc or .docx format) directly to your Writing Fellow at least 24 hours in advance of your conference. Drafts submitted after the 24-hour deadline will NOT be read by your Writing Fellow. This policy will be strictly enforced. 

Be sure to include in the document itself a brief agenda of what you want your Writing Fellow to focus on. If the document is more than 15 double-spaced pages in length, indicate which 15 pages you want the Writing Fellow to review.
