LAW - 732 Appellate Advocacy
This course builds on the writing skills developed in the first year of law school. Students prepare appellate briefs and present oral arguments in a moot court program. This course teaches written and oral advocacy in the context of a simulated appellate case file. Students will learn about the appellate process, develop research and analysis skills, prepare an appellate brief, hone critical writing skills, and present oral arguments. In addition to providing a substantial writing experience and deeper understanding of advocacy, the course prepares students to represent GGU in extramural moot court competitions. Successful participants may be invited to join the Moot Court Board. (Note: Not a JD program ‘required course’ for students starting in fall 2018 and thereafter.) This course counts toward completion of the Upper Division Writing Requirement. Prerequisite(s): LAW 725A Writing and Research I , LAW 725B Writing and Research II .
