Description

Global Lawyering Skills is designed to teach fundamental lawyering skills by introducing students to a broader range of skills than a traditional research and writing textbook. While the book covers basic objective and persuasive legal writing skills, it also addresses other lawyering skills, such as oral argument, ARD, transactional drafting, and client interviewing and counseling. Additionally, students need an understanding of how cross-cultural and transnational considerations impact the practice of law.
