Summer Skills Interviewing, Counseling & Negotiating
Credits: 3 academic
Faculty: Prof. Eylan Schulman
Prerequisites: Students must be rising second, third, or fourth year students, with priority given to seniority.
Students assume the role of a lawyer through a variety of small-group and large-group exercises. Through these exercises, students learn the art and skill of interviewing, counseling, and negotiating; to plan for and develop a case from one stage to another; to anticipate and deal with ethical issues; and to develop the skill of self-critique. Simulation exercises are videotaped where appropriate. Students perform most exercises during the twice-a-week class time with some out-of class work for preparation as well as performance critique.
