In this seminar, students are prepared for work in the trial court and for the atmosphere of the courtroom. Extensive use is made of simulated trial episodes. During the early weeks of the semester several phases of trial practice will be illustrated, and students will be given the opportunity to perform one or more of the functions of trial lawyers on their feet, such as direct and cross examination, opening statements, handling of exhibits, objections, and closing argument. Some sections of the seminar require specific witness and juror service of each student enrolled. Instruction in the practice and technique of advocacy is provided during each class session. All sections schedule at least one full mock trial in the latter weeks of the term in which each student will serve as individual or co-counsel. Make a decision whether to take this section of Trial Ad before you register. Instruction begins the first night and much can be lost in missing the first lecture. Attendance for each class session is strongly encouraged because almost every class will involve student performances, during which most instruction will occur.
COURSE REQUIREMENT: Performances in each segment of trials and presentation of an entire trial case
