Instructor(s) Plum, Christina

A recent survey of legal employers in Wisconsin 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.
