LAW 428P - Trial Advocacy Practicum.


This practical course is designed to prepare students for litigation at the trial stage. Through lecture, demonstration, and discussion, students will engage in an in-depth examination of the planning, organization, and techniques necessary for successful trial advocacy. Special emphasis will be placed on presenting the persuasive trial story through planning and organization of opening statements, effective direct and cross examination, the use of demonstrative evidence, and jury argument. Students will be required to develop a comprehensive trial notebook. In addition to the one hour joint meeting, each of the sections will meet separately. The emphasis will be on skills development and students will have the opportunity to plan, organize, and practice trial advocacy. Under the supervision of the instructor, practice exercises involving discrete problems of increasing complexity will culminate with each student preparing and trying a criminal or civil case to a jury.Three hours.Burnette, Speight, Vellines, and Wallace
