This course is designed to acquaint students with pretrial litigation practice in typical civil cases. While the case file used is an employment/harassment case, the skills taught are applicable in any civil case setting. This is a skills course, in that it focuses on the practical application of the civil rules, decision making and judgment. We will cover pleadings; written discovery; preparing for, taking and defending depositions (including mock deposition practice); making and opposing motions; and oral argument of motions. Strategies, settlement considerations, client relations and other topics relevant to typical litigation practice are also discussed. The evidence course, while useful, is not a pre-requisite.
This course satisfies the Experiential Requirement.
