Deborah Epstein Henry’s recent book Law and Reorder covers the difficulties of achieving a work-life balance. But one particular section of the book will be of special interest to legal writing professors: Henry's list of core competencies for lawyers. At the top of Henry's list, which she adopted from Peter Sloan’s book From Classes to Competencies, are the subjects that form the basis of our courses: written communication, oral communication, and research and analytical ability. This is just one more source supporting the importance of legal research and writing courses.
