The course will provide practical education on the law industry, including recent trends and challenges. Designed to prepare law students for the realities of the practice of law, it will address the economics of the law business, work place communication skills, ethical problems junior lawyers encounter in the work place, client service and development fundamentals, and how junior lawyers can be the most valuable to their law firms, corporate law departments, or agencies. The course will utilize a text on law practice management, and additional case studies, court decisions, and materials culled or created by Professor Rubin. The final “exam” will be the development of solutions to actual legal management problems.
Sequence and Prerequisites: None.
