LAW Interviewing, Counseling and Negotiation
Prof. Dwight Golann,
4 credits day; 4 credits evening.
This course teaches core skills which lawyers must employ in practice. Students examine the lawyer/client relationship in the context of realistic practice scenarios, learning how to perform effective client interviewing and counseling through role-plays. They also learn to negotiate on behalf of clients, in both transactional and litigation situations. The course relies heavily on roleplaying, class discussion and review of video; as a result, enrollment is limited. Students write short journal entries periodically in which they are asked to reflect on what they have learned through exercises. There is no paper or examination; grading is based on students’ journals and class participation. May not also enroll in Interviewing and Counseling.
