Across practice areas and jurisdictions, new lawyers need fundamental lawyering skills. Global Lawyering Skills is designed to teach these fundamental lawyering skills by introducing students to a broader range of skills than a traditional research and writing textbook. While the book covers basic objective and persuasive legal writing skills, it also addresses other lawyering skills, such as oral argument, ARD, transactional drafting, and client interviewing and counseling. Additionally, students need an understanding of how cross-cultural and transnational considerations impact the practice of law. GLS is one of the only legal research and writing textbooks available that covers foreign legal systems, intercultural competence, and cross-cultural considerations in the practice of law. GLS is sufficient for a two-year curriculum, but would also work well in a one, two, or three semester course.
This title is a part of our CasebookPlus(tm) offering as ISBN 9781634595124. Learn more at CasebookPlus.com. Learning Civil Procedure provides a broad, student-centered, user-friendly approach to civil procedure that is both clear and sophisticated. It engages students through presentation of examples and analyses that build mastery of the material before moving on to more involved problems similar to those students will encounter on final examinations, bar examinations, and as lawyers. The book makes great use of problems to facilitate dialogue in class and correspondingly uses many fewer case excerpts than does the typical casebook. But it includes the core "canon" of civil procedure opinions as well as sufficient historical background necessary for producing culturally literate lawyers better equipped for actual real world litigation practice. For those teachers who want more cases, the accompanying website includes edited versions of all the traditional cases found in most civil procedure casebooks. The website also provides exam questions, multiple choice practice questions, and a Comprehensive Study Guide. For more information and additional teaching materials, visit the companion site.
