Law Blogging with Formative Peer-Assessment: Improving Students' Writing, Digital Skills and Assessment Literacy
journal contributionposted on 2023-07-26, 14:21 authored by Egle Dagilyte
Legal blogging – academic, professional, journalistic – carved out its space among blogs in the variety of industrial and social contexts. Blogging is also no longer news in legal higher education: many law firms and businesses use blogs as marketing tools, and some even ask students applying for employment to write a blog post, in order to assess their writing skills and communication abilities to non-specialist audiences. This article shares experience on blog writing in law classroom, both from student perspective as well as from teaching perspective, raising questions whether module leaders and tutors of EU law should employ more blog writing exercises that are assessed either formatively or summatively, because law blogging engages students with the subject and helps develop multiple skills that graduate employers seek.
