This course, which is designed to supplement the writing component of Legal Research, utilizes lectures, in-class assignments and “workshop” tutorials and discussions to strengthen students’ legal writing skills. There will also be a discussion of legal interviewing skills and how information obtained from client and witness interviews can be used as a building block for legal proceedings with consideration for ethical issues faced by paralegals.

I enjoyed my internship and the people I worked with. I appreciated the level of trust in my abilities that the firm gave me, and felt it was a rewarding experience in all. Marie Y.
