Advanced Legal Communication

The goal of this course is to allow students to experience the type of work that a typical practicing lawyer experiences. Thus the students will work through a case file just like a lawyer does in practice. There will be both oral and written assignments of different levels of formality, ranging from a chat in the hall with a senior attorney to a document presented to a court. The substantive assignments will grow out of the case file and include analytical work, either predictive or persuasive or both, client letters and even emails. They will also include various types of drafting, such as a contract or a client¿s employment policy, or even depending on the case file, proposed legislation. Much of the work of the course will be done in teams or groups. .
