Legal Methods

An in-depth approach to logical analysis targets developing skills in formal logic, critical reading, fact analysis, identifying legal issues, identifying analogues, and creating counter analysis, through a series of writing exercises. Students will employ these academic skills to accomplish directed writing objectives and to solve practical legal problems, including formulating and evaluating solutions to issues using relevant facts and law. Students will develop the ability to write clearly and concisely for the appropriate audience and to plan and organize written tasks under time constraints. Required for all students whose GPA is at or below 2.2., as determined for all students at the end of the fall semester of the 1L year.
