LAW - 649 Trial Advocacy: Pretrial Litigation


(2-3 hrs.)

In Pretrial Civil Litigation students explore the pretrial process in federal civil litigation, including interviewing clients; drafting pleadings, written discovery and motions for summary judgment; taking and defending depositions; and presenting oral argument on motions for summary judgment.  Students in this course use a simulated case file as the context for developing pretrial strategies and practical skills.  Students work individually and in teams.  This is an experiential learning course that incorporates in-class simulations and self-critique as components of the learning process.  English Algeo, Boals, Bruckheim, C.
