U.S. Legal Discourse II: Writing for Law Practice
LL.M Seminar 844 | 1 credit hours
Students will write a series of documents that are related to their representation of a client in the context of a U.S. law firm. Students will analyze the client's legal position, perform individual legal research on the related law, and write a legal memorandum that will address the client's concerns. Students will also give oral presentations of their research findings. Students will receive individual feedback on both written and oral work.
Students who enroll in this course may not enroll in any other U.S. Legal Discourse II course.
The course is graded honors-pass-fail and is only open to foreign educated LL.M. students (i.e., those students who do not have a U.S. J.D. degree). This section is recommended for foreign-trained students pursuing an LL.M. in Taxation. Enrollment is limited to a small number of students. First class attendance is mandatory.
