Law in Practice
As a first year law student you learned the elements and theories of the law, but have you considered the numerous factors that impact a client’s interests and an attorney’s practice? Join us for the second session of Law in Practice where an attorney in the practice area Contracts Law will walk you through a recent client matter involving a concept of law from your first-year course work. You will be given an opportunity to consult on the case (How would you have worked to resolve the issue?). Then the presenter will explain the ultimate outcome of the matter and what considerations, beyond the black letter law, came into play.
