The Session is a two-week long professional skills training program for all law students, 1L to 3L. Each instructor teaches a 3-credit course focused not on substantive doctrine, but on the performance of lawyering tasks – drafting transactional documents, arguing motions, interviewing clients, preparing expert witnesses, etc. The classes meet four to five hours per day for ten days: Monday through Friday from January 5 to 16 of 2015.
