LAW 205P - Advanced Civil Procedure Practicum: Discovery.


In this practicum, the student will exercise professional judgment in conducting discovery in a civil litigation matter.  The practicum is designed to focus on Rules 26 - 37 of the Rules of Civil Procedure, as well as Rules 702 - 705 of the Rules of Evidence.  Students will therefore be required to prepare and respond to written discovery, as well as conduct depositions of fact and expert witnesses.  At the beginning of the semester, the students will be provided the facts of a hypothetical dispute, the complaint, and the answer/counterclaim which have been filed in the matter.  The students will be paired so that a student will represent either the plaintiff or the defendant in the hypothetical dispute.  Each student will determine what information needs to be obtained, as well as which method of discovery would obtain that information most efficiently; then each student must implement his/her professional judgment effectively by crafting the written discovery or conducting the depositions to obtain the information. Three hours. Evans Not offered in 2015-2016.
