Description

Across practice areas and jurisdictions, new lawyers need fundamental lawyering skills. Global Lawyering Skills is designed to teach these fundamental lawyering skills by introducing students to a broader range of skills than a traditional research and writing textbook. While the book covers foundational objective and persuasive legal writing skills, it also addresses other lawyering skills, such as oral argument, alternative dispute resolution, transactional drafting, and client interviewing and counseling. Additionally, students need an understanding of how cross-cultural and transnational considerations impact the practice of law. GLS is one of the only legal research and writing textbooks available that covers foreign legal systems, intercultural competence, and cross-cultural considerations in the practice of law. GLS is sufficient for a two-year curriculum, but would also work well in a one, two, or three semester course. The new edition provides updates to existing chapters and includes new chapters on professionalism and professional identity, incorporating feedback, and judicial writing.
