Lawyers' Skills 2007-2008

Julian Webb

Lawyers' Skills takes into account the 'Written Standards' published by the Law Society of England. It addresses all the skills that are integral to the modern lawyer's practice. The text introduces students to the theory underpinning these skills and is supported by reflective exercises and examples from practice. Importantly, the methodology employed allows students to continue their learning beyond the law school. Each chapter contains a clear statement of learning outcomes and the text is interspersed with questions and exercises designed to encourage and facilitate learning. Chapter summaries, tables, flowcharts, and practical examples are also used extensively throughout. The text places skills in the context of the general ethical and client care principles which govern modern legal practice. This guide is essential reading for all students and a useful reference for practitioners.
