This is the second semester of a two-semester sequence. Enrollment is limited to students who completed the Ninth Circuit Practicum in the fall semester.
The Ninth Circuit Practicum provides students an intense experience in appellate advocacy. Students brief and argue cases before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on behalf of clients who would otherwise not have legal representation. Students also learn aspects of federal law and appellate practice.
The Practicum works in collaboration with the Ninth Circuit’s Pro Bono Program. Practicum supervisors and students were appointed to several cases in the fall, with opening briefs filed then. In the Advanced Ninth Circuit Practicum, students will file reply briefs in these cases and present oral argument under faculty supervision.
Students must devote considerable time to these cases on the court's abbreviated schedule, so they should not concurrently enroll in a clinic, field placement or practicum, or course with a competing commitment. Nor should they have a competing commitment in an employment or volunteer setting.
Attendance at each seminar session and full participation in the practicum portion is mandatory to receive credit for this course.
Fall 2022 Ninth Circuit Practicum. Students must also concurrently enroll in the Advanced Ninth Circuit Practicum Seminar (Law 243.71).
