Appellate Competition Intensive is a one-credit crash course in the fundamentals of appellate writing and oral argument. This class is designed for members of moot court teams who are not enrolled in the full 3-unit Appellate Advocacy class. The aim of this class is to give students an overview of law-school appellate-advocacy competitions, including how they work, how to understand and respond to the competition's "problem," and how to work effectively in a competition team. Through this process, the class addresses the essential tools of appellate practice, with an emphasis on effective writing. By the end of this class, students will be able to competently and confidently address the problems presented in moot court competitions and in real appellate practice.
Ted W. Pelletier is the principal in the Law Office of Ted W. Pelletier. He has practiced California civil litigation, with an emphasis on appellate work, for over 25 years. He has handled the briefing and oral argument in dozens of appeals in the California appellate courts, including numerous cases in the California Supreme Court. He also works with trial counsel on trial and motion work, including summary-judgment motions and oppositions, evidentiary issues, jury instructions, and post-trial matters.
This class is for students who have been chosen to participate in an appellate competition during the 2022-2023 academic year.
