LAW 0460: Trial Advocacy I
Fall 2017 • Section 20

Course Description

Trial Advocacy I is part of the Integrated Trial Advocacy Program (ITAP), a two semester, ten credit course package. ITAP combines Evidence, Civil Procedure II and trial advocacy skills. Taken in the fall along with Evidence and coupled with the spring courses of Civil Procedure II and Trial Advocacy II, Trial Ad I introduces the student to the basic skills of analyzing a trial file, examining witnesses, making and meeting objections and offers of proof, introducing exhibits, and delivering opening statements and closing arguments through a ""learning by doing"" or student performance format. Trial Ad I has a decidedly criminal trial advocacy orientation. The course culminates with students trying a mock criminal jury trial. Particular attention is given to the interplay between the law of evidence and the art of trial advocacy.
