Core Grammar for LawyersProf. Deb Periman, J.D., Legal Studies Program Coordinator, recently announced that "Core Grammar for Lawyers" is now part of the curriculum for UAA Legal Studies students enrolled in Legal Studies 215 and will be required for the Legal Studies Senior Seminar.

Core Grammar for Lawyers (CGL) is an online, subscription-based, self-directed learning program that helps law, pre-law, and paralegal students, as well as practicing lawyers and paralegals, develop the grammar and punctuation skills that are critical to successful legal writing. The lessons are self-paced and allow students to progress, no matter what their skill level when they begin the program.

The program includes interactive exercises and immediate feedback to students about why a particular answer is correct or incorrect. It focuses on the technical style and citation requirements of legal writing.
