Evidence for Litigators

Class Unique: 28700

This course combines all the traditional knowledge and theory of a traditional evidence class but adds the layer of applying the rules in practice. Students practice arguing evidentiary motions, have weekly application exercises and explore issues of memory, false confessions, digital evidence and the future of evidence and technology. This course is for students who intend to practice civil or criminal litigation and want a deeper understanding of how judges interpret the rules and how lawyers use the rules to their advantage.

Students who have taken Evidence may not take Evidence for Litigators. This course counts as one-credit hour of Experiential Learning.
