PROFESSOR MICHAEL BLASIE SERVES AS LEGAL WRITING INSTRUCTOR IN NATIONAL JUDICIAL COLLEGE’S JUDICIAL WRITING PROGRAM
April 2021 — Professor Michael Blasie served as a legal writing instructor for the National Judicial College’s Judicial Writing Program. As an instructor, he ran individualized writing feedback sessions for administrative law judges from across the country.
The National Judicial College is a non-profit specialized in teaching judges. Professor Blasie joined the College’s legal writing faculty. Building on his decade of litigation experience and prior publications on persuasive writing, Professor Blasie ran focused one-on-one writing sessions with administrative law judges from across the country. Much like in Dickinson law’s first-year legal writing classes, these sessions provide opportunities to dive deeply into an author’s writing and explore ways to improve the writing process.
Professor Michael Blasie brings his decade of litigation experience in trial and appellate courts to researching and teaching legal writing. His scholarship focuses on persuasive writing and the phrasing of legal standards. He has authored a seventeen-part legal writing series for practitioners, co-authored the treatise on Colorado Appellate Law and Practice, and published his scholarship published in the New York University Annual Survey of American Law and the DePaul Law Review.
