Successful practice in the modern solicitors' firm demands a high level of competency across a range of legal skills. Mapping to the Solicitors Regulation Authority's Written Standards, Lawyers' Skills has been specifically designed to provide students with a solid understanding of the theory and concepts underpinning the key skill areas of legal writing and drafting, interviewing and advising, practical legal research and advocacy. Invaluable guidance is also provided on a range of other skills, such as effective time management, negotiation and email etiquette which it is essential to master before going into practice. The interactive nature of skills as a subject is reflected in the text by the inclusion of realistic examples from practice, tasks and reflective exercises throughout encouraging students to develop, practice and refine their legal skills. Learning outcomes, chapters summaries, diagrams and self test questions are also extensively featured and provide additional learning support to students during their study of legal skills. This text is essential reading for all students and is a useful reference source for practitioners wishing to refresh their legal skills. Online Resource Centre An expanded Online Resource Centre accompanies the 2008-09 edition of Lawyers' Skills, featuring a test bank of multiple choice questions, a bank of realistic sample documentation highlighting legal writing and drafting in action across a range of legal documents and references to further reading previously included in the book.
