This is a litigation writing course that offers an introduction to the practical, procedural and analytical aspects of private transnational litigation in the U.S. and Europe. Through a case simulation students will examine differences in legal systems and how to effectively navigate the challenges and opportunities presented when litigation goes global. Students will produce several written assignments, such as: a research email, an Answer or Complaint, several predictive memos, a client letter, and a brief. Writing assignments will involve initial drafts, instructor feedback, peer review, and final revisions. Research skills will be reviewed and practiced. The course builds on the skills learned in the first year in Legal Research and Writing and Written and Oral Advocacy, by providing more challenging legal problems and expecting more independent work. The class provides an excellent opportunity for students to develop the research, writing and advocacy skills necessary for a successful transnational litigation practice.
