About the Authors
  • This book develops students' understanding and practice of client interviewing, writing and drafting, negotiation and advocacy in the context of extensive research in the legal profession and the civil and criminal justice systems. It emphasizes the extent to which lawyering is a dynamic process, determined by a variety of legal, business and ethical considerations. It encourages students to develop a critical and reflective approach geared to developing their abilities to manage this dynamic environment.

    • It adopts a workbook approach, enabling students to engage meaningfully with the material
    • Includes numerous exercises to facilitate teaching and learning
    • Bridges the gap between academic and practical law for students undertaking undergraduate skills-based and clinical legal education courses
