Across practice areas and jurisdictions, new lawyers need fundamental lawyering skills. Global Lawyering Skills is designed to teach these fundamental lawyering skills by introducing students to a broader range of skills than a traditional research and writing textbook. While the book covers basic objective and persuasive legal writing skills, it also addresses other lawyering skills, such as oral argument, ARD, transactional drafting, and client interviewing and counseling. Additionally, students need an understanding of how cross-cultural and transnational considerations impact the practice of law. GLS is one of the only legal research and writing textbooks available that covers foreign legal systems, intercultural competence, and cross-cultural considerations in the practice of law. GLS is sufficient for a two-year curriculum, but would also work well in a one, two, or three semester course.

Now there is a way to teach a comprehensive yet efficient course in employment law. By presenting a thematically and organizationally coherent view of employment law through the lens of private ordering, this refreshing new casebook avoids overwhelming students while enabling instructors to cover a wide range of content. The authors make their book accessible and teachable by: organizing the book around the theme of private ordering -- the rights and duties that flow between parties in an agreement -- and the laws that seek to balance contractual freedoms and market forces with countervailing social interests using this framework to comprehensively cover varied topics taught in the employment law survey course providing thorough thematic and doctrinal coverage of each area presenting cases that are rigorously edited for brevity but include detailed discussions of the facts using brief, accessible notes and questions to address the cases and stimulate critical thinking supplying problems and exercises that require students to apply the doctrine in a particular context and to think creatively about how to protect the interests of workers or their firms developing students' transactional lawyering skills -- such as planning, drafting, advising, and negotiating -- in the context of the employment relation The casebook is part of a complete teaching package that includes: a comprehensive Teacher's Manual that explains the selection of materials, discusses how the authors present the materials to their students, lists the questions they ask students, and provides answers and suggested comments for the problems and exercises in the book a helpful website -- updated monthly -- where professors and students will find newspaper and magazine stories, sample practitioner materials, new cases, updates, additional problems, PowerPoint slides, and employment law examinations

Lawyers know that client counseling can be the most challenging part of legal practice. Clients question and often resist the complexities and uncertainties inherent in law and legal process. Honest advice from the lawyer can make a client doubt his or her allegiance and zeal. Client backlash may be directed at the lawyer who communicates bad news. Thus, the lawyer may feel torn between the obligation to clearly inform a client about weaknesses in legal positions and fear of damaging the client relationship. Too often, the lawyer struggles to counsel a particularly difficult client, but to no avail. Client Science is written to provide insight and advice to lawyers on how to more effectively communicate with their clients with regard to legal realities and difficult decisions. It will help lawyers with the always-difficult task of delivering "bad news," which will result in better-informed and thus more satisfied clients. The book explains applicable social science research and insights and translates them into plain language relevant to legal practice and client counseling. Marjorie Corman Aaron offers specific suggestions related to a lawyer's ordering, timing, phrasing, and type of explanation, as well as style adjustments for the lawyer's voice, gesture, and body position, all to impact client counseling and to improve the lawyer-client relationship.

Beyond Legal Reasoning a Critique of Pure Lawyering

The concept of learning to ‘think like a lawyer’ is one of the cornerstones of legal education in the United States and beyond. In this book, Jeffrey Lipshaw provides a critique of the traditional views of ‘thinking like a lawyer’ or ‘pure lawyering’ aimed at lawyers, law professors, and students who want to understand lawyering beyond the traditional warrior metaphor. Drawing on his extensive experience at the intersection of real world law and business issues, Professor Lipshaw presents a sophisticated philosophical argument that the "pure lawyering" of traditional legal education is agnostic to either truth or moral value of outcomes. He demonstrates pure lawyering’s potential both for illusions of certainty and cynical instrumentalism, and the consequences of both when lawyers are called on as dealmakers, policymakers, and counsellors. This book offers an avenue for getting beyond (or unlearning) merely how to think like a lawyer. It combines legal theory, philosophy of knowledge, and doctrine with an appreciation of real-life judgment calls that multi-disciplinary lawyers are called upon to make. The book will be of great interest to scholars of legal education, legal language and reasoning as well as professors who teach both doctrine and thinking and writing skills in the first year law school curriculum; and for anyone who is interested in seeking a perspective on ‘thinking like a lawyer’ beyond the litigation arena.
