Abstract:

Legal skills are an important and increasing part of undergraduate law degrees as well as postgraduate vocational law courses. This fully updated fourth edition continues to bring together the theory and practice of these skills in an accessible and practical context. The authors draw on their experience of teaching and of law in practice to develop the core skills taught on both undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Skills covered include: written communication; mediation; opinion writing; drafting; advocacy; interviewing; negotiation; legal research. The text also considers the professional and ethical context of legal practice, provides an insight into the legal services landscape as well as offering valuable careers advice. Diagrams and flow charts help to explain and develop each skill and each chapter ends with suggestions for further reading. A Practical Guide to Lawyering Skills is essential reading for all undergraduate and vocational law students seeking to develop the necessary skills to work successfully with law in the twenty-first century.
