WELCOME TO FUNDAMENTAL LAWYERING SKILLS

THE KEYS TO DEVELOPING YOUR PRACTICAL LEGAL SKILLS ARE COACHING, PRACTICE AND FEEDBACK.   Through Fundamental Lawyering Skills (FLS), you can learn necessary practice skills in authentic recorded simulations in which professional New York City actors play the role of the client.  These realistic simulations offer you a unique opportunity to experience the unpredictable and complex world of legal practice in a controlled, simulated environment while receiving guidance and feedback from your "clients," your classmates, and FLS faculty.
