Representing clients effectively requires practical insights and tools well beyond law school casebooks, law review articles, and theoretical discussions.  Collectively, practice materials help guide you through the litigation or transaction process from the initial client meeting to the final settlement or last aftermath.  Practice materials help you address inevitable questions such as, "Is this a good case to take?  What is it worth?  What obstacles could block this transaction? What strategies do experienced attorneys consider in these circumstances? What's the current black letter law on this issue in my jurisdiction? What do I do now?"  Chances are that you will not have an experienced colleague holding your hand every step of the way in every client matter; well-chosen practice materials are the next best thing.
