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 Advanced Trial Practice is a limited enrollment course for third-year students who are especially interested in litigation. It provides students with an opportunity to refine their basic trial skills, as well as an opportunity to practice jury selection, presentation and cross-examination of expert witnesses, and impeachment. The development and improvement of advocacy skills and techniques are the focus of this class. Written assignments are designed to complement specific advocacy skills and to assist the student in identifying and addressing litigation issues. The class utilizes a criminal case problem that presents a guilt-innocence question and challenges students to consider issues including witness and juror bias, cross-racial identification and the presentation of non-traditional experts. The final exam is a mock trial. Evidence and Trial Advocacy are prerequisites. Students enrolled in the class are encouraged to participate in trial advocacy competition.
Note This course satisfies the professional skills requirement.
