JD and MLM students: new resource for writing a 5,000 – 10,000 word essay

Dear MLM and JD students

This may be the resource you never knew you wanted.

I have tried to recreate my workshop on writing a 5,000 to 8,000 word legal research essay in Canvas.

Legal Research Essays – Long Form

You will need to self-enrol in the LASC Canvas community if you are not already a member (it launched in February 2020 – this is NOT the old blackboard community).

I have tried to capture all the advice I usually offer and I’ve included some online quizzes and activities that mirror what we do in class (as well as the technology allows).

I am also going to host some weekly ‘drop in sessions’  when you are welcome to ‘drop by’ for an informal chat, or ask questions about the resources we have posted.

All students are welcome.

Check the announcements in the LASC Canvas community for the zoom URL.

Please drop by and say hi.

I’ll be scheduling more drop in sessions on other topics you choose so please use the discussion board or emails to let me know what you would like me to address in an informal zoom session. I will be posting the links to more sessions in announcements so please keep checking in with the system.

I think this is really challenging for everyone so please let me know how we can help with your studies.

And now, for your moment of calm

Take good care,


PS thanks so much to all those of you who contributed to the list of songs for dancing in the kitchen in both the discussion board and the success at mls website.  I’m still putting together the spotify playlist so if you have more to suggest, please do!
