Prerequisites: RCC. Transition to Practice will focus on teaching students the fundamental skills that all lawyers need to be successful: problem-solving, interviewing, counseling and negotiating. The course uses a combination of inter-related classroom work, simulations, and research, as well as reading and writing assignments to build these critical skills. The grade will be based on observed simulations, written assignments/work products, class participation, assessments and evaluations, and a capstone assignment.
Permission of the instructor(s) is required. The course is designed to prepare students for participation in a clinic or externship so preference will be given to second year students.Back to Course Descriptions
