A recent survey of legal employers in
revealed that they
believe that well-developed oral communication skills are essential.
This course focuses on helping students refine the oral communication
skills that they will need to perform efficiently and effectively as
practicing attorneys. Students will participate in a variety of
in-class exercises, such as introducing a speaker, arguing a motion to
a judge and giving a presentation to a board composed of non-attorneys.
Each student will receive specific, personalized feedback on his/her
performance in the exercises.
