Legal Careers in Evolving Wrld
Legal Careers in an Evolving World
This seminar will expose and sensitize students to the myriad of real-world considerations that will affect their legal careers. It will focus on current developments within the legal profession, various law practice management issues, and will explore whether the profession is undergoing transformational change as law firms increasingly adopt business models. During the first two weeks of class students will articulate what they hope to learn about the legal profession and for the remainder of the semester work closely with their instructor to insure that learning. Approximately 6 hours of class time will be devoted to professional responsibility issues. Students will read a blog and course materials posted on C-tools. Leaders within the legal profession will appear as guest lecturers. Grades will be based upon classroom participation and a research paper.
