Practical Lawyering Skills
535: Adv. Writing Workshop Civil and Criminal Law
This course focuses on the development of skills necessary for particular writing assignments that arise in the course of a civil lawsuit or a criminal prosecution. While writing well in litigation is important in itself, it also contributes to a litigator's skill as an oral advocate. Moreover, practice in oral advocacy contributes to a litigator's effectiveness as a writer. For this reason, this course will require the student to participate in oral advocacy exercises as well as undertake specific writing assignments.
