About Practical Skills Training  

To become a great lawyer, students must practice the hands-on skills of lawyering. Whether it is making a winning argument before an appellate court, negotiating an outstanding settlement for a client, or drafting the complex contract needed to perfect a merger, Seton Hall offers students the opportunities needed to excel.

Through the required courses in Legal Research and Writing, Appellate Advocacy, and Persuasion and Advocacy, students acquire the written and oral skills needed for the practice of law. Students learn how to properly make an argument and convince others of their position.
