Overcoming Civil Litigation Obstacles

2 Unit(s)

Real-life cases illustrate the unexpected twists and turns a civil case can take and the strategies employed to prevail. Using actual trial court case examples and milestone appellate decisions, students will apply creative strategies in role-playing exercises and written work assignments often assigned to associate attorneys: opinion letters, motions, reports to clients, and appellate briefs. Guest lecturers will provide diverse perspectives on how a recently-admitted lawyer can make a difference.
