Lawyering Program

The Lawyering Program focuses on teaching the real-life skills employed by practicing attorneys. All first-year students are enrolled in the program’s full-year Lawyering course, which incorporates legal writing, legal analysis, legal research, client counseling and interviewing, and oral presentation.

Program Overview

Thanks to a generous donation from an alumnus

In September 2022, the Lawyering Program faculty engaged in an interactive legal-writing workshop with national expert Ross Guberman, author of Point Made and Point Taken. The workshop covered proven techniques for writing persuasively and giving feedback.
