Course Outline: Lawyering Skills and Strategies II will focus on further developing the underlying skills and strategies that lawyers must possess to succeed within the American legal system. By working through problems inside and outside of the classroom, you will continue to refine, and you will add to, the legal-research, analysis, writing, and citation skills that you learned last semester. More specifically, you will learn and practice the art of persuasion in advocating for your client—whether with your client’s opponent, to a trial court, or in a professional email. You will also be introduced to mediation. And you will practice advanced citation skills, including those based on The Greenbook. In all matters, you will be expected to uphold the ethical and professional standards of a lawyer-in-training.
