From BFOI Deb Eisenberg:
The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law has openings in the Fall for Visiting Assistant Professors in our new first-year Lawyering program.
The Lawyering course sequence provides students with a strong foundation in the analytical, oral and written communication, and professional skills essential in the legal profession. Consistent with Maryland Carey Law’s tradition of integrating doctrine, theory, and practice, the Lawyering curriculum places students in the role of attorneys in the context of simulated cases involving doctrinal subject matter from their other first-year courses.
All of the Lawyering sections use the same simulated case file to teach fundamental legal analysis and written communication skills in an integrated practice-based context. The topics covered in Lawyering I include: sources of law; analysis of case law and statutes; effective legal writing; client interviewing; fact investigation and case development; problem solving; and professional responsibility. Acting in a simulated attorney role, students prepare legal documents, with emphasis on client correspondence and legal memoranda that analyze the applicable law and recommend a strategic course of action.
The application deadline is April 15.
