This course is designed primarily for the LLM (or JD) student who wants to understand how 98 percent of American civil litigation is conducted and
resolved -- before trial. Students will gain an understanding of the skills needed to bring or defend a basic American civil lawsuit, including: interviewing a client and preparing a complaint; responding to the complaint; taking and defending discovery; and negotiating a settlement. Focus will be on role-playing exercises and the practical
application of civil procedure rules to the real-life situations that students are likely to encounter in American civil practice. The
instructor is an American civil trial judge who specialized in complex civil litigation as a lawyer.
