This class is a more rigorous and competitive class and will move at a much faster pace than Advocacy Survey. Intensive is intended to replace many of the fall interscholastic competitions. The class does not require formal training, but does require an interest and dedication beyond that of the basic class. Students will try 3 or 4 cases throughout the course of the semester: 2 solo mini-trials and 2 full trials with partners. Cases will be both civil and criminal, and the class will particularly emphasize cross-examination skills. All classes will occur during the day. This is a 4-credit course graded on a pass/fail basis offered only during the fall semester. Prerequisites: Advocacy Survey and Evidence (can be taken concurrently).
