Teaching Lawyering Skills: An Integrated Approach

About the eBook

Foregrounding the importance of schemata in learning, Teaching Lawyering Skills presents an integrated approach to the overall pedagogical theory of law. Stefan Krieger challenges the traditional stark dichotomy between doctrinal analysis and practice skills, arguing that skills education requires development of strategic reasoning in practice.

This fascinating book focuses on two main cross-cutting themes: effective investigation, analysis and presentation of facts; and effective questioning, listening and responding. Addressing these two themes in both dispute and transactional contexts, it outlines a unique course that centres the skills of fact investigation, interviewing, negotiation, deposition-taking, and direct and cross examination of witnesses. Ultimately, Krieger presents a storyboard method to teach trial advocacy, providing specific teaching guidance and suggesting practical exercises to use either in law school classes or office-based training.

Utilising empirical research in the cognitive sciences and medical education pedagogy, this innovative book will be essential for law school instructors of simulation, clinical and externship skills courses. It will also appeal to trainers of new law graduates and paralegals at law firms, government law offices and nonprofits.
