Simulations and Specialized Skills Courses

Set Yourself Apart

In addition to clinics and externships opportunities, Western New England School of Law offers a number of courses that help students learn by engaging in simulations of the kind of real-world lawyering that normally takes place outside of the classroom. These courses teach oral argument skills, negotiation skills, mediation skills, transactional and litigation drafting skills, problem solving, and much more.

Our simulation courses have rich factual scenarios involving complex legal issues that give students the opportunity to learn critical lawyering skills in a safe environment that promotes self-reflection and allows for direct faculty feedback with video-recorded sessions in many cases.

Simulation courses are offered in the areas of trial methods, negotiation, arbitration, mediation, business, bankruptcy, tax, and real estate.
