Law Firm Careers in an Evolving Profession
This seminar will expose and sensitize students to the myriad real-world considerations that will affect their legal careers in the private practice of law. 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 ensure that learning. Approximately six 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 a research paper.
