Course Outline: Lawyering Skills and Strategies I will focus on an introduction to the American legal system and the underlying skills and strategies lawyers must possess to succeed within it. By working through problems inside and outside of the classroom, you will learn to identify legal issues; gather initial facts from the client; locate and assess the governing law; analyze legal issues within the context of particular fact patterns; cite to the governing law; and write clear and concise documents that communicate your legal analysis. And, in all matters, you will be expected to uphold the ethical and professional standards of a lawyer-in-training.
