E-220 – Trial Advocacy & Writing


3 Credits

An intensive study of the preparation required for trial, and the essential techniques and skills required for trial practice. In addition to the "on-your-feet" skills development involved with opening statements, direct examination, cross examinations, and closing arguments, students will also be required to write trial-related documents including motions in limine and trial briefs. As a result of the significant writing component, this class satisfies an upper division writing requirement. This class involves the presentation of evidence or writing motions involving evidence. Prerequisites: LWRA I & II, Evidence. Satisfies the upper level writing requirement. Limited to 12 students.
