Undergrad Final Semester Courses

Starting law school in the fall, and need a few more credits to graduate?  What a great position to be in.  Your biggest dilemma is what courses to take so that you can coast to graduation.  Consider taking public speaking and writing courses. 

Your gut reaction to that suggestion may be “That’s crazy.  I hate public speaking and writing, and I want an easy, not hard final semester.” 

Despite that reaction, put aside your preconceived notions for a moment and consider the following reasons for taking such courses. 

1.Writing is the most important skill for doing well in law school. 

2.The ability to speak confidently and well is the most important skill for career success.

3.Public speaking and writing courses often generally do not have final exams.
