Communications and Legal Reasoning Program: News!
I am delighted to report that we have a new Director of our Communication and Legal Reasoning coming aboard at the beginning of the next academic year. Michelle Falkoff joins us from the University of Iowa College of Law where she has been teaching legal analysis, writing, and research for six years. A graduate of Columbia Law School, the University of Pennsylvania, and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, Michelle has been widely lauded for her great skills as a writing teacher and her extraordinary work as a colleague in Iowa’s fine writing and research program.
The CLR program at Northwestern Law School is a centerpiece of our first-year skills program. Through the hard work of our CLR instructional staff, we hone oral and written communications skills and help prepare students for the demanding world of legal practice. In this world, excellent communication skills are essential. With Michelle’s leadership and guidance, I look forward to taking CLR to an even greater level of excellence and reputation.
