Introduction to Lawyering

This course acquaints students with the defining attributes of the legal profession including a code of ethics and assumption of duties to clients, the justice system and society. It focuses on the evolving nature of legal services, types of law practices and demographics of the legal profession and the skills required for law practice.

Legal Research, Writing and Appellate Advocacy

The Florida Bar and the ABA have made clear that lawyering skills must be a significant element of a law student’s preparation for practice. The Legal Research, Writing and Appellate Advocacy Department’s mission is to provide to our students the means to master these skills.
