Legal Writing Centre

Legal Writing Centre Header

Lincoln Alexander Law's Legal Writing Centre is designed to help our students build and improve their legal and academic writing skills through one-on-one teaching sessions. Our Legal Writing Centre is aimed at strengthening writing expertise with a focus on big-picture content and the personalized communication of ideas. Our hope is to help our law students become exceptional and confident writers.

Our Legal Writing Specialist, Odelia Bay, can assist students with law school assignments at various stages of the writing process: from understanding assignment instructions and planning or structuring an outline, to answering questions during the writing process, and even to deciphering professor feedback on marked assignments or making edits for publications.

Fifty-minute sessions are held online with our Legal Writing Specialist. Odelia is available Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays and students are welcome to book one 50-minute session with her per week (additional appointments may be made available with permission from the Student Academic Support Office).
