LAWS 2155 Law Practice II (Spring: 2 )

Course Description

In their second semester, all 1L students will be enrolled in this 2-credit course in satisfaction of the requirement in ABA Standard 303(a)(2) for a rigorous writing experience in the first year which is faculty supervised. Building on the research, analysis and writing experiences in Law Practice I, students will prepare documents, primarily in the context of advocacy, which involve more complex legal problems than those presented in Law Practice I. The emphasis will be on improving clarity, precision and effectiveness of these communications for a designated audience and purpose in a simulation, with continued attention paid to a lawyer’s ethical and professional responsibilities to the client and the legal system. The course involves classroom instruction and discussion, group work, and intensive individual feedback and conferencing
