LAW700  A  ADVANCED APPELLATE ADVOCACY I

Course Description
Whether you are arguing to an appellate judge, a trial judge, or the senior partner in a law firm, you need to be able to make a strong legal argument. Rarely does this come naturally to people. This class focuses on helping students develop the skills to write effectively and argue under fire. The ability to anticipate questions, prepare and deliver answers to difficult questions, and weave back into your argument is so important. Through a series of mini-problems, lectures and guest speakers, students will receive individualized, personal training which will be helpful in preparing them for the Gaubatz Competition (precursor to invitation to the Charles C. Papy Moot Court Board).
