Montana Presents at Southeastern Regional Legal Writing Conference

Live critiquing is the process of giving students feedback on their written work “live,” rather than in writing, and at the same time as the professor is first reading the student’s work. This process gives students an opportunity to engage with their drafts, talk out their reasoning and writing decisions, and receive quick and individualized feedback. Through the presentation, Professor Montana discussed these benefits as well as some of the drawbacks of the technique, and offered modifications to help improve the experience for both the professor and student.
