LAW 137 - Advanced Lawyering Skills

Fall/Spring 1 J. Stevenson

This course will build on the knowledge and practical skills gained in Lawyering Skills (135) further to assist LL.M. students in successfully working with U.S. lawyers. In this regard, students will delve more deeply into the professional expectations and responsibilities of those who work with U.S. lawyers. Importantly, students will continue to improve their oral and written communication skills through in-class exercises, simulations and other active class participation. The foregoing will include topics related to interacting with clients, reviewing legal documents, and conducting negotiations and alternative dispute resolution exercises. Students will be graded on a number of oral and written assignments throughout the semester. The final grade will be based on performance on such assignments and class participation. Students will be graded on the following scale: Honors, Pass, and Fail.
