This course is intended to bring to life the materials taught in the basic Business Associations course. As lawyers, students will encounter idiosyncratic, demanding, and occasionally unreasonable clients, constantly evolving new technology, old-fashioned financial and time management constraints, and most of all, interesting problems to solve. Importantly, they will then be asked to implement their solutions to those problems. Although no classroom course can truly simulate the nuanced tapestry that is modern legal practice, this course is designed to provide skills training to law students in the following four core legal skills: client counseling (including engagement of a new client, interviewing and fact gathering); legal drafting (including client correspondence via letters and e-mails as well as traditional legal document drafting); negotiation; and advocacy.
