This book is a new primary text for use by the full panoply of experiential courses, including clinical, externship, legal writing, practical, interviewing, negotiation, counseling, and trial/appellate advocacy. Using multimedia examples, including the podcast Serial, as well as exercises drawn from actual lawyering situations, this book describes, explores, and analyzes narrative as a pedagogy of lawyering. The book addresses the broad spectrum of skills and practice areas and fora that the profession increasingly demands.
This is a comprehensive book for using narrative, stories, and storytelling to develop more fully and effectively as a lawyer. The book provides the theory and information for planning for, conducting, and reflecting on various lawyering activities. In addition, the authors make the teaching relatable and transferable to a variety of contexts by using concrete examples drawn from their own extensive practice, writing, and teaching using lawyering and narrative.
