LAWU 3003 The Art of Analytical Thinking


(3 hours)
Teaches critical thinking across the spectrum of disciplines, asking why certain arguments are persuasive and others are not. Students will examine the practice of law as a competitive sport of persuasion; the lawyering process in litigation; cognitive theory and analytical thinking in law; and analytical tools for building the client’s case. The course will conclude with the nexus between analysis and rhetoric, and rhetoric and the game of persuasion.
