Course Outline: Course Outline: Lawyering Skills and Strategies II will focus on legal writing in litigation and transactional contexts and the skills and strategic planning lawyers must possess to succeed within actual lawyering experiences. The curriculum will be problem – based, using fact-pattern simulations to enable students to work through actual practice skills and strategies and ethical issues. Training in essential lawyering skills such as oral communication, legal writing, research, and analysis will be embedded within fact pattern simulations involving typical litigation and transactional issues that students will work through to develop lawyering skills and problem-solving strategies. Students at times will be assigned to represent opposing sides of the problem.

Note: 1). I strongly recommend for this course the title "Interactive Citation workbook for the BlueBook: A Uniform System of Citation. 2). Renting the Pollman textbook (Examples & Explanations: Legal Writing) is fine, but I would recommend purchasing the BlueBook: A Uniform System of Citation & the GreenBook: Texas Rules of Form.
