Abstract:     
The Carnegie Foundation report "Educating Lawyers" argued that law schools should make explicit the subsidiary skills that law schools teach to graduate practice-ready lawyers. The authors of this article identify, organize, list, and explain the subsidiary skills necessary for analytic and analogical reasoning of the kind practiced by lawyers. They also suggest ways to instruct law students in those reasoning skills, meeting the Carnegie Report's challenge.
