Being persuasive, showing why others should agree with you, is important for lawyers in any field, not just those who want to argue in court.

In addition to practicing and achieving higher proficiency in the six goals for Legal Analysis and Writing 1, in successfully completing this course, you will have learned how to: 1) Organize coherent persuasive analysis using conventional legal structure and format; and 2) Prepare and present an oral argument.
