Law 792: Advanced Legal Reasoning Workshop
In this course, students in the second semester of their third year will revisit and refine the analytical skills they acquired in their first-year course on Legal Writing and Analysis. The focus will be on mastering a systematic, stepped process for analyzing legal problems, which will prove useful to students both in the daily practice of law and in their preparation for the state bar examination. Students will practice bringing this stepped methodology to bear on problems resembling those used on the Multistate Performance Test (MPT) component of the bar examination. The students also will receive individualized feedback on these practice exercises in both group and individual settings
Sequence and Prerequisites: None.
Evaluation: Students will be evaluated on a pass/fail method, based on writing assignments throughout the course, and a final exam, consisting of a final writing assignment.
