Incorporating skills training into a traditional Property course is challenging. This creative and original book provides ten independent exercises designed to develop student skills in legal drafting, client interviewing and counseling, negotiation and advocacy. Each exercise is based on fundamental Property rules and doctrines so that the book can be used as a supplemental text with any doctrinal casebook. Students are required to spend a manageable one to two hours on such tasks as replying to a client e-mail, writing a demand letter to an opposing party, preparing an executive summary, interviewing and counseling a client, litigating nondisclosure claims, negotiating a lease agreement and a condemnation award, and drafting a deed and an easement agreement. Each exercise contains a work product template that the student must complete for assessment purposes.

The professors each wrote a short chapter on one of the cases, retelling the cases in their own voice and by their own method.
