Masechet & Hilchot Shabbat 103a-104b: the machlokes regarding the פטור of writing with one's left hand. Is this a uniqe Halacha of מלאכת שבת based upon the requirement of Meleches Machsheves; or is this a universal Halacha which define כתיבה for all Halachos, e.g. the writing of Tefillin or a Get. The bulk of the shiur is dedicated to understanding the relevance of the debate between R' Yossi and the Tana Kamma regarding מלאכת רושם. Why shouldn't the פטור of שינוי in left handed writing apply even for R' Yossi when he wrote two letters with his left hand? The end of the shiur will introduce the issue of writing with ink as opposed to fruit juice. Is the latter a Halacha of Shabos or a universal Halacha that would apply to Get?
