For the first half of this course students will engage in pretrial litigation through which they will be required to draft motions and responses relating to issues in the case and conduct hearings on the motions. For the second half of the course, students will be taught trial skills as they prepare and try the case. This course will satisfy the upper division writing requirement. In addition to drafting and arguing pretrial motions, students may be required to draft jury instructions and/or trial briefs.
