Student Legal Writers' Association
SLWA of Saint Louis University School of Law serves two purposes:
- It serves as a student writers' forum aimed at strengthening non-class, legal writing projects through peer-edits and guest-faculty feedback. Special attention is given toward polishing writing projects for competitions, journal articles, job prospects, etc.
- It sponsors various programming geared toward developing student legal scholarship, research, and writing.
Annual Law Student Symposium:
SLWA is excited to host one of the few law-student only symposiums annually in April. For consideration, second and third year law students from SLU, WashU, UM-Columbia, UM-KC, SIU-Carbondale are invited to submit their papers in February (TBD) in a blind review. One paper will receive special honors including a $500.00 award.
