LAW 2729 - Law Practice Management

A seminar devoted to the ethical, legal and business considerations in forming and running a law firm. Students will analyze complex fact patterns based on real and hypothetical scenarios that arise in the day-to-day life of managing a law firm. Students will then be asked to read, analyze, and apply discrete portions of a specimen partnership agreement, an employee handbook, an ethical rule, and a ground lease to the fact patterns provided. These tasks will then be converted either into a written or oral presentations for the class, who will serve as an Executive Committee of a law firm. Grading will be based on class participation, role-playing exercises, written assignments, and a final exam.
