This course is designed to give students a practical and conceptual understanding of those lawyering skills fundamental to American civil litigation. Students will be exposed to the various aspects of a civil lawsuit in diverse simulated settings. Exercises will introduce students to developing legal case theories; questioning strategies and techniques useful for interviewing clients, deposing hostile witnesses, and questioning witnesses at trial; the basics of pre-trial motion practice; and other aspects of the litigation process, such as alternative dispute resolution and settlement considerations. LLM and JD students will be paired in these simulation exercises to maximize the students' exposure to comparative lawyering techniques.
