Course Description:


COURSE DESCRIPTION: In this course we explore the kinds of arguments made by lawyers in contested cases. In each class session, a fact pattern and relevant precedents are distributed to the class and there is a discussion of what arguments lawyers for each side of the controversy ought to make. There is no search for the “right answer,” but rather for arguments that will increase the settlement value of the case to each side.

The fact patterns usually raise issues from Contracts, Property, and Restitution.

ENROLLMENT NOTE: Common Law I is not a prerequisite for this course.

NOTE: Laptops are not allowed during class sessions.

Course Requirement:Flex examination at end of the semester. Contributions to the class discussions are critical to the success of the course. Consequently, attendance and preparation are highly valued.
