This is a one-week intensive course in which students work directly with clients, review a complex file, conduct legal research, negotiate and draft a deal, and negotiate and draft a resolution to a dispute, among other activities. The course focuses on the student’s role as a professional and enables the student to identify strengths and weaknesses for further professional development. All students work on the same simulation, but students choose a specific area of law. For the Summer 2013 course, students choose from one of three areas at the time of registration: (i) international; (ii) technology; and (iii) transactional.
Grading: Letter graded.
The student’s grade will be based on the following: (i) a reflection paper on the course simulation, due one week after the class ends, critically evaluating the student’s strengths and weaknesses and developing a plan for further professional development (33%); (ii) the student’s final drafts—completed in teams—of two agreements, a transaction and a resolution to a dispute (33%); (iii) the student’s feedback from attorney-coaches on interviewing, counseling, negotiating, and professionalism during the simulation (33%).
