Hours & Credits
OverviewThis course builds on the skills developed in LW111 Courts and Dispute Resolution I and introduces students to legal research. The nature of legal reasoning will be examined in greater depth, particularly with respect to the determination of issues and the resolution of legal complexities. The focus writing exercises will shift from predictive to persuasive legal analysis, with continued emphasis on the importance of grammatical English expression. Finally, students enrolled in face-to- face mode will continue to develop their oral advocacy skills through the presentation of longer, and more formal arguments in court settings.
