This is an advanced legal analysis, writing and research class in which students will learn advanced legal research and writing theory and argumentation, as well as LGBT community/legal representation issues. All students will complete at least one research memo for the legal department of the Mazzoni Center, a Philadelphia Based LGBT social service provider. Plus, students will be assigned short-term, quick turn-around assignments called "Rushes." Each project will be generated by the Mazzoni Center in conjunction with its legal needs. We will also have an opportunity to meet and interact with the assigning attorney(s) from the legal department of the Mazzoni Center, and to participate in possible professional and Philadelphia Bar Association-related social outings.
