This Seminar is the classroom component for the Ninth Circuit Practicum. Please see the course description for the Practicum (Law 243.7A) for application procedures and other information. The Seminar will introduce the substantive and procedural federal law involved in the Practicum’s appeals and techniques of appellate advocacy. The Seminar will also serve as a forum to workshop the cases and strategies. We will frontload the learning. Students must attend an all-day (remote) Seminar meeting on the Saturday before the first week of class. The Seminar will meet less frequently after the opening briefs are filed in October.
Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.
The 9th Circuit Practicum (Law 243.7A) is a co-requisite.
