Advocacy Outside of the Courtroom A

Class Unique: 28345

So you know the basics of litigation, what next? Are you ready to take a deposition, represent a client in mediation or try a case to an arbitrator? An effective advocate needs the knowledge and skill to assess which dispute resolution process best suits the case. In this practice intensive class, you will develop essential skills for a modern litigator whose most significant "trials" may occur outside a traditional courtroom. Working with arbitrators, mediators, lawyers and judges, students will develop and hone their deposition and negotiation skills as well as handle a mediation, arbitration and summary jury trial. This is a 4-credit class (2 credits pass/fail, 2 credits graded).  Required Prerequisite: Advocacy Survey OR ADR survey, OR Mediation.
