Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description Pretrial Litigation is a simulation-based course in pretrial civil litigation procedure, practice and strategy. Students will be presented with one or more clients with litigation problems, which will require them to conduct interviews, draft pleadings, organize and undertake fact investigation, prepare and respond to written discovery, take a deposition, file and argue a motion, and negotiate. Throughout the course, students work in small law firms, and many of the projects will be group projects. Grades are based on individual and group work product, not an exam. The course is designed primarily for students who may go directly into solo or small firm general practice, although it also may be useful to any student contemplating a career that includes litigation. It duplicates some of the pedagogical content of the Community Legal Clinic, so in the event of over-enrollment, preference will be given to students who have not taken that course. Warnings: (1) Most materials for this course will be distributed in electronic form via a course website, so a computer and the ability to work over the Internet are required. The class home page is http://law.indiana.edu/instruction/tanford/b564/home.html. (2) The course requires frequent group meetings, so is not recommended for anyone who lives out of town and commutes to Bloomington only a few days a week. (3) The course will meet on both Thursdays and Fridays. Attendance is required both days, and some sessions will run for several hours.
