This course is taught by two adjunct professors who have extensive litigation experience and years of instructing law students and lawyers to be effective trial advocates. This course experience blends practical and rigorous on-your-feet exercises culminating in a mock trial, with class discussion of trial techniques, strategy, and ethics. Students directly participate in a series of trial practice problems as witnesses and attorneys. Some sections use videotape as an aid to the learning process. Different instructors in this course emphasize different problems, including jury selection, motions and discovery practices, opening statements, direct and cross examination, handling exhibits, expert testimony, making and opposing objections, and closing arguments. The course is designed especially for students who wish to obtain some trial experience but lack the time to enroll in a regular litigation clinic. Note: Some sections of this course may require an extended class or extra meetings outside of class to accommodate the mock trial as a final exam.
