Lawyering Soft-Skills Seminar

Law 527






This seminar course will serve as an overview to the nuts and bolts of listening and communicating like an attorney and counselor. The course will introduce students to the basic theory and techniques of client interviewing and counseling, negotiations, and conflict resolution that are necessary for effective representation of clients.

This 1-credit, overview course will have a small amount of overlap with the following three-credit courses: Alternative Dispute Resolution (Law 219), Negotiations (Law 467), and Interviewing & Counseling (Law 485). Those courses each offer substantially more coverage and practice about a specific subset of skills. By contrast, the 1-credit course simply provides an introductory overview to a variety of the skills. Completion of this course does not preclude students from taking and receiving credit for the more in depth courses mentioned above (Law 219, Law 467, and Law 485 ).
