One of the most important skills for a lawyer is synthesizing cases. Although I think some of us stress this skill in our legal writing classes, it is a skill that I do not think is taught enough in law school. For an excellent article on teaching synthesis see Thinking Like a Lawyer: The Heuristics of Case Synthesis by Jane Kent Gionfriddo, Texas Tech. L. Rev. (2007).
