In my undergraduate studies, no course has left a positive impact on me more than expressive writing. Most courses I have taken dictated that good writing reflects the application and knowledge of course content and themes.

My experience in the course will serve as an example of why I’ll need to commit to this goal If I want to pursue legal studies
