LAW D460: ITAP
Spring 2019 • Section 20

Course Description

The "Integrated Trial Advocacy Program" (ITAP) is a two semester, ten credit course package. ITAP combines Evidence, Civil Procedure II and trial advocacy skills. In the Fall, Evidence and Trial Advocacy I coupled with the spring courses of Civil Procedure II and Trial Advocacy II, introduce students 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. Trial Ad II has a decidedly civil trial advocacy orientation (see the Spring 2018 schedule for further information).
