This three-unit spring course is designed to help students develop lawyering skills that students will need in their legal careers. The course continues to refine students' skills in the legal research, analysis and writing style techniques introduced in the fall semester LAWS I course. In addition, it adds instruction on persuasive legal writing. The course also includes assignments and lessons on professionalism, oral advocacy and client counseling. NOTE: First-year students will receive their specific LAWS section and professor information at or just before Orientation. Once assignments are made, students will not be permitted to switch LAWS sections. Students are placed with professors during their first semester and will continue working with that professor through the school year.
