The legal profession is a career that is based on communication. Lawyers talk to their clients, to the courts and to opposing counsel when they are negotiating across the table or in a mediation setting when they are trying to resolve a case. That is why St. Francis offers live online classes where professors and students meet and talk face to face about legal doctrine. Live online classes also include simulated role playing exercises, where students negotiate, present oral arguments before a panel of mock justices, and counsel with clients. Highly experienced professors guide students in developing the professional skills needed to speak effectively about the law. St. Francis students develop these important professional lawyering skills, and excel in their ability to discuss the law.
