Subject outline

Legal work frequently entails the communication of information, the presentation of material and participation in some form of mediation of issues, either formal or informal. Students obtain practical experience in these skills in a number of settings, such as appellate courts, Magistrates' Court and tribunal hearings, conciliation conferences and settlement negotiations. There is an analysis and discussion of ethical issues and of broad questions of policy that surround these practices. Students receive grounding in the use of such skills as interviewing, advocacy and negotiation
