Lawyers' Skills 2010-11

Julian Webb

Lawyers' Skills has been specifically designed to help students develop the legal skills required for successful practice in the modern solicitors' firm. Suitable for use on courses following either the Written Standards or the new LPC Outcomes, the book equips students with a solid understanding of the theory and concepts underpinning the key skills areas of legal writing and drafting, interviewing and advising, practical legal research and advocacy. Invaluable guidance is also provided on a range of other professional skills including effective time management, negotiation and email etiquette which it is essential to master before going into practice.

The inclusion of realistic examples from practice, tasks and reflective exercises reflects the interactive nature of skills as a subject and encourage students to develop, practise and refine their legal skills. Chapter summaries, diagrams and self-test questions are also featured throughout and provide additional learning support to students during their study of legal skills.

This text is essential reading for all LPC students and is also a useful source of reference for practitioners wishing to refresh their legal skills.
