Spring 2024 • Section 24

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, and weekly skills lectures. In the Fall, Evidence, and Trial Advocacy I, and weekly skills lectures coupled with the spring courses of Civil Procedure II, and Trial Advocacy II, and weekly skills lectures, 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 2024 schedule for further information).
