Legal Practice I
Legal Practice I is the first semester of a required, two- semester sequence that introduces first year students to essential lawyering skills. The four-credit Legal Practice I course will integrate the teaching of legal reasoning and analysis, predictive legal writing, and legal research and problem solving with other lawyering skills, such as fact analysis and client interviewing. The skills will be studied in context—as the individual skills relate to each other, to the role of the lawyer and to the skills students are learning in their first year doctrinal courses. Students will have multiple opportunities to learn these skills through practice, collaboration, individualized feedback and reflection.
