LAW - 804M Effective Brief Writing & Motion Advocacy


2 unit(s)
A judge’s first impression of a lawyer is often based on the quality of his or her papers. That impression had better be a good one. This course, taught by a former prosecutor, will teach students how to effectively draft motions and argue them in a real-world setting. Utilizing a variety of fact patterns, students will develop a portfolio of written work and will receive feedback aimed at building confidence in courtroom advocacy. This course counts toward completion of the Experiential Learning Requirement.
