Call Number: KF273 .H4 2014
Publication Date: 2014-03-11
A funny and insightful introduction to the rest of your life. Tens of thousands of lawyers started here. If you join them, you will have a hands-on experience with the difficult but central skill: legal analysis. Then you'll learn about study skills: briefing cases, making the most of your classes, and taking exams. You'll practice and critique examples. As a lawyer you'll write and talk a lot --- therefore, the chapters on legal writing and oral argument will help. Finally you'll sit back and see how a case develops, from late night advertising to closing argument. Along the way, you'll find material on ethics, jurisprudence, and finally, bad jokes.
