Course Description

Considering a career in the legal profession? If so, this course if for you. The course is designed to help students develop the skills necessary to thrive in the legal industry. The class begins with a multi-disciplinary exploration of the law and its evolution in western society and transforms into an in-depth look at the skills necessary to thrive in the modern legal ecosystem. Much of the course is structured around foundational legal subjects also taught in law school (e.g., civil procedure, contracts, property, etc.).

Students will leave the class better critical thinkers and better writers who are prepared to tackle the rigors of law school and the legal profession.
