Anticipating a career in civil or criminal litigation? This class is designed for the advocacy student interested in improving advocacy skills through intensive training exercises and immersion into trial, arbitration and civil litigation skills. In the Intensive Advocacy course, students are divided into small groups and tracts allowing them to focus on the distinct skills for their preferred practice area. The course is almost exclusively experiential (skills based), with students receiving constant feedback in a fun, safe environment. The class provides networking and possible employment opportunities with local attorneys and judges serving as instructors and guests.
This class is restricted to 3Ls only. It is a 4-credit class (1 credit letter graded; 3 credits pass/fail). Students can take the graded portion P/F if they so choose.
Prerequisites: Advocacy Survey and Evidence.
