Legal Skills Workshops and Competitions
In recognition of the need to develop professional skills in environments beyond the classroom, several activities are sponsored each year at the Law School. These include workshops to develop client counseling and negotiation skills, and intra-school competitions in client counseling, appellate, and trial advocacy. The Law School sends the intra-school champions to the American Bar Association's Regional Client Counseling competitions every year. Recently the Michigan team was a national client counseling finalist. Michigan has also served as the host of the regional client counseling competition.
