The primary objective of this course is to enable a student to acquire, by way of experiential learning, the specialised technical knowledge and skills required of entry level lawyers. Legal Practice aims to build upon, and enable students to apply, earlier learning in both substantive and procedural law. The course complements courses studied simultaneously such as Constitutional Law and Administrative Law. The course builds on the earlier course Legal Practice 1 LAWS 6014A and LAWS 6014B focusing on the more advanced aspects of legal practice, transactions and litigation. The course will enable students to develop and practice the specialised legal and other skills needed for complex litigation and legal transactions, including effective written and oral communication with clients and parties, court room advocacy and the drafting of complex legal documents and settlement of litigious and non-litigious matters.
