What legal employers expect in new law graduates

Susan Wawrose of Dayton recently published a paper about what legal employers want in new Wawrose_susan law graduates. She conducted focus groups of selected Dayton-area lawyers and found that they expect new graduates to exemplify professionalism, have strong research skills, and be effective legal writers. As writers, the new lawyers should consider their audience, write succinctly, and organize effectively, using IRAC. As a result of her research, Wawrose has added more varied assignments—including oral and email responses—to her legal writing course.
