In this practice/simulation course, students will develop the legal skills needed to represent clients in the context of employment law. The course will focus on client representation from the perspective of both employee and employer. The course will include drafting outside of the litigation context as well as litigation documents. For example, the course will introduce students to non-litigation or pre-litigation policies and agreements such as employment agreements, non-compete agreements, employee handbooks, severance agreements, letters to clients, and responses to enforcement agencies. Litigation documents may include pleadings, motions, and discovery. Students will engage in simulations and exercises in class and complete drafting assignments outside of class.
