Legal Practice 1 - Part A
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, particularly in the areas of Torts, Contract Law, Criminal Law and Property. The course complements courses studied simultaneously such as Civil Procedure and Professional Conduct.
The course will enable students to develop and practice the specialised technical knowledge and legal and other skills needed for litigation and legal transactions, including effective written and oral communication with clients and parties, court room advocacy, drafting letters and legal documents and settlement of litigious and non-litigious matters.
