With an emphasis on persuasive legal writing at different stages in a criminal case, this course utilizes experiential learning techniques to teach written and oral advocacy skills. During the semester, you will author several pre-trial motions, including motions to dismiss, motions to suppress evidence, and in limine motions. In addition, students will conduct regular mock hearings throughout the semester based on their written briefs. At the conclusion, students will be positioned to excel as certified law students in criminal clerkships.
Attendance at the first two weeks of class sessions is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present during the first two weeks of class (without prior permission of the instructor) may be dropped without notice. The instructor can 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 risk being dropped without notice.
This class may be counted as either an Option 1 class (two Option 1 classes satisfy the J.D. writing requirement) or units from this class may count toward the J.D. Experiential Requirement. This class may count for both requirements if and only if a student is electing Option 1 and the student's other Option 1 class being used to satisfy the J.D. writing requirement is not being counted towards any other requirement.
Exam Notes: (None) Class requires a series of papers, assignments, or presentations throughout the semester
