Skills training and Constitutional Law are not always readily associated with one another. This book shows that it can be done! The goal of this book is to provide ten exercises to develop student skills in legal drafting, client counseling, advocacy, and negotiation in a Constitutional Law context. The problems are based on topics covered a basic Constitutional Law class and can be used with any doctrinal casebook. The assignments range from analytical emails and letters to clients to revising legislation and negotiating settlements over constitutional claims. The problems can be assigned individually or to groups, and each contains an optional legal ethics component. The Teacher's Manual provides an analysis of each problem, along with suggested discussion points for both the ethics component as well as ways to introduce professionalism concepts alongside basic Constitutional Law doctrine. The Manual also suggests modifications to the problems that would allow their use in consecutive years.

This creative and original book is designed for use in three ways. It can supplement a traditional Secured Transactions text with skills training exercises, be used as the text for a 1-credit drafting workshop added on to a doctrinal commercial law class, and also as the text for a 2 or 3 credit contract drafting course. The ten user-friendly exercises are modular so that professors can assign one or two exercises a semester to gradually make their classes comply with ABA requirements for transition to practice credits as well as formative and summative assessments. Students work in teams to negotiate and draft core documents that memorialize a secured transaction, starting with a promissory note, and continuing on to a financing statement and security agreement. In a 2 or 3-credit drafting course or workshop, students could also negotiate and draft a personal guaranty, perfect a security interest in a delivery truck and fixtures, balance ethical requirements of client confidentiality with truthfulness, and compile a portfolio of the documents with a cover letter to the client. Each exercise requires only fifteen to thirty minutes of class time and one to two hours on homework assignments that have students identify the anatomical parts of a contract (preamble, recitals, words of agreement, etc.), fill in a template promissory note with the parties' names, principal amount, interest rate, and signature blocks, and edit a template security agreement to conform it to the terms of the students' negotiated agreement. Each drafting exercise contains a template that students edit, and the text includes instructions for negotiation exercises.

This book seeks to aid the professor who wants to introduce skills training within the context of a traditional doctrinal course. Legal education is on the cusp of a new era. Law students and the profession are demanding that students leave law school better prepared for practice, with lawyering skills in place. Concurrently, learning science has shown that experiential learning (for example, a skills-based simulation) improves student outcomes with regard to mastery of a subject. Incorporating skills training into a traditional Contracts course is challenging, however, as professors feel constrained to cover the basics of doctrinal law and may not feel well-equipped to teach skills. The book provides ten independent exercises designed to introduce students to the skills of legal drafting, client interviewing and counseling, and negotiation and advocacy, but with a particular emphasis on contract drafting, as that skill is so closely tied in to Contracts. Each exercise is based on fundamental Contracts rules and doctrines so that the book can be used as a supplemental text with any doctrinal casebook. Students are required to spend a manageable one to two hours on such tasks as replying to a client e-mail, writing a demand letter to an opposing party, interviewing and counseling a client, litigating a breach of contract claim, negotiating a contract term and an amendment to a contract, and drafting specific parts of a contract, such as a representation or a condition, as well as negotiating and drafting a settlement agreement. A comprehensive Teacher's Manual provides guidance, particularly with regard to how to present and assess the skills involved, and suggestions for expanding the classroom discussion to include ethical issues, professional responsibility concepts, and the norms of modern legal practice.

Skills-Based Approach is a methodology centered on the development of a skill set over a career; it is a progression in four stages: planning, building, presenting, and validating. Each stage has proposed ways to achieve its objectives. The beauty of a skills-based approach is its simplicity and flexibility. It effectively handles the complex factors in career planning and development, such as changing career demands due to technology and demographics, rising education costs, and increasingly competitive employment market. A skill set represents your functional capabilities, essentially a list of skills with your level of expertise. Skill sets are searchable, standardized, interactive, and portable. Professional web services have adopted the use of skill sets and some have built sophisticated search engines based on them. This book guides you through planning a skill set to achieve career aspirations, learning and building an expertise with skills and how to respond to setbacks or opportunities, presenting skills on various platforms, and validating skills so you establish credibility with your intended audience. The objective of this book is to provide a framework that can be used throughout your career to increase your chances of success. Career planning is the key to finding happiness.

This volume analyzes different types of knowledge and know-how used by practising professionals in their work and how these different kinds of knowledge are acquired by a combination of learning from books, learning from people and learning from personal experience.; Drawing on various examples, problems addressed include the way theory changes and is personalized in practice, and how individuals form generalizations out of their practice. Eraut considers the meaning of client-centredness and its implications, and to what extent professional knowledge is based on intuition, understanding and learning. He considers the issue of competence versus knowledge and the effect of lifelong learning on the quality of practice.
