About The Practice Skills Toolkit

Most practicing attorneys know that the education received in law school is only a small portion of the knowledge that is needed, and needed as quickly as possible. Continuing education, new lawyer programs, and firm-sponsored training and mentoring all seek to provide new attorneys with the tools they need to succeed. Practice Skills Toolkit ADR is a compilation of articles, chosen by younger practicing lawyers, which struck them as helpful guides in the practice of law.

These articles, arranged under the topics of Ethics, Discovery, and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), are timeless and universal in their appeal. In the world of increasingly complex discovery practice, increasing ADR, and serious attention to ethics guidelines, knowledge of these three areas is essential. Whether at a large or small firm, in-house or outside counsel, rural or urban, and regardless of practice area, each of these topics will affect all litigators.

While Practice Skills Toolkit ADR has the young lawyer in mind, all attorneys will benefit from a refresher on the topics covered here. The book is not a definitive guide on the practice of law, but instead, a forum for sharing viewpoints of successful practitioners on some of the most basic concerns of the practice of law. Any litigator is likely to find new or forgotten lessons in these articles.

Practice Skills Toolkit ADR is a compilation of numerous resources published by members of the American Bar Association Section of Litigation. Hundreds, if not thousands, of articles were reviewed, and the best were chosen, resulting in a book of relevance and worth to new and veteran attorneys. This guide can help provide the additional base of knowledge and information all new lawyers (and many not-so-new lawyers) need to reach their full potential as successful litigators.
