New Lawyers Learn Critical Litigation Skills & Ethics at Lawline’s September 2019 Bridge the Gap
September 5, 2019
Law school provides students with a critical legal foundation: how to analyze cases and important legal doctrine, and conduct legal research. Enterprising law students will also gain some hands-on experience through a clinic, externship, or moot court - but there’s still so much left to learn, especially when it comes to conducting a trial. For example, how do you develop the theory and themes of your case? How do you make sure your first pleading is just right? And how can you ensure that you’re not coloring outside the lines when it comes to your ethical obligations? Get answers to all that and more at Lawline’s action-packed Bridge the Gap Event this month.
Join Lawline on Sunday, September 22, 2019 for our highly anticipated event, Bridge the Gap Skills & Ethics: What Lawyers Need to Know. Bridge the Gap is designed for both newly admitted and experienced practitioners in need of live, in-person CLE credits.
