Question description

Discussion Boards are an important component of your coursework and will solidify your learning of the topics in each unit. Please refer to the Discussion Board Rubric in Doc Sharing for grading information.

When posting on the Discussion Board,

  • Communications must be professional and civil at all times. All posts must be done in an environment which is collaborative.
  • The goal of discussion is a free exchange of ideas and viewpoints with the freedom to disagree with one another in a respectful and thoughtful way.
  • Reread messages and posts before sending them to ensure that your contributions are positive and diplomatic in tone and content.

Topic 1: Drafting Letters

  1. Your supervising attorney has given you a client file and the notes from a recent meeting with the client. She mentioned to you that she really has little detailed recollection of the meeting. Her former paralegal, which left the firm three weeks ago to move to somewhere in Spain, attended the meeting and prepared the notes. There seem to be a great many gaps in the information contained in the notes; you are not even certain what the client wants.
    • What should you do?
    • What kinds of correspondence might you need to draft?
  2. Your supervising attorney, Kelly Ramsey, has asked you to draft a letter to a new client. The client, Annabelle Smythe-Jones, wants to divorce her husband, a wealthy local industrialist. Ms. Ramsey has spoken to Annabelle by telephone and set a lunch meeting for 11:45 am on August 22 at the Oilman's Club. Ms. Ramsey has asked you to reserve a conference room from 2:30 pm until 5:00 pm on the 22nd, because it is possible that she and Anabelle will return to the office after lunch to continue the meeting in private. Raphael Hernandez, a family law associate for your firm, will also attend the lunch.
    • What kind of letter should you draft to Anabelle?
    • Is there any other correspondence you might also want to draft, given these facts?
    • Is there any information that you need. What? Be specific.

Comment and discuss with the class. Remember to respond to at least two of your classmates' posts.
