Lawyering skills are increasingly part of undergraduate law degrees as well essential elements in the postgraduate vocational law courses, the LPC and the BVC. This fully updated third edition continues to bring together the theory and practice of these skills in an accessible and practical context.

  • opinion writing
  • drafting

  • interviewing
  • negotiation
  • legal research.

Each chapter uses diagrams, boxes, lists and flow charts to further explain and develop each skill and ends with a further reading section.

Review:

'...serves as a useful instrument for anyone considering a career as a lawyer.' Lex Magazine, autumn term 2005, issue 23. 'The difference with this book is the depth and depth of the material covered - opinion writing, a very decent chapter on advocacy, conference skills, mediation and a handy glossary of computing terms (making buying that home computer a bit easier). As a companion to be read alongside, for example, the core skills on the LPC you wouldn't go far wrong by dipping into the this handy volume now and again.' tsgLife! Magazine (Trainee Solicitor's Group), autumn 2005. Praise for the second edition; 'This guide aims to develop the core skills that are taught at both undergraduate and vocational levels. The book is divided into chapters ranging from legal writing, research and drafting to the skills of advocacy, interviewing, negotiating and meditation. It therefore covers a whole spectrum of skills that undergraduates, post-graduates and trainees are expected to learn to different levels of proficiency...The book is generally user-friendly with clear titles, subtitles and succinct language. The text is effectively broken up with examples of draft letters, precedents, cross-examination dialogue and explanatory diagrams, adding to the clear and straightforward nature of the book. There are also exercises for the reader to complete and model answers, which help the student to consolidate the information. At the end of each chapter there are some recommendations for useful further reading. There is also a chapter on information technology, recognising its ever-increasing importance in the legal field...The book will be a useful guide for law students or those about to enter law school.' The Trainee Magazine, autumn 2004.
