Legal Practice Skills

 

 

The saying is that in law school, you learn to think like a lawyer. From your first day at Penn Law, Legal Practice Skills will teach you not only how to think like a lawyer but also how to act and communicate like one.

You will learn fundamental practice skills by taking on the role of a lawyer solving problems for your client—identifying legal issues, investigating the facts, finding the relevant law, making strategic choices, and presenting analyses and solutions orally and in writing.

Beyond the mandatory first-year Legal Practice Skills course, Penn Law offers a wealth of opportunities for developing practical and professional skills inside and outside of the classroom. Visit the Penn Law Curricular Compass for more information.
