B722 Trial Advocacy

Description Trial Advocacy is one of the core courses in the litigation curriculum. It covers the techniques, tactics and performance aspects of the trial; including opening statements, direct and cross-examination, exhibits, and closing arguments. There is also discussion of courtroom demeanor, relationships with judges and court officials, and ethical guidelines for courtroom practice. Students learn by doing, with every student performing in smaller practical sections most weeks. In lieu of a final exam, students conduct a full trial. Trial Advocacy is the second course in the trial practice sequence. Evidence is taken first, and is a prerequisite to Trial Advocacy. Trial Advocacy is taken second, and is a prerequisite to Advanced Trial Practice and Trial Competition. Trial Advocacy is also useful as preparation for clinical courses that involve litigation, such as Community Legal Clinic. Trial advocacy is taught by experienced trial lawyers and judges. Please note that in addition to the sections managed by each of the respective instructors, the students from all sections meet on Tuesdays at 7:45 for a forty-five minute lecture.

Note This course satisfies the professional skills requirement.
