In Pretrial Civil Litigation students explore the pretrial process in federal civil litigation, including interviewing clients; drafting pleadings, written discovery and motions for summary judgment; taking and defending depositions; and presenting oral argument on motions for summary judgment. Students in this course use a simulated case file as the context for developing pretrial strategies and practical skills. Students work individually and in teams. This is an experiential learning course that incorporates in-class simulations and self-critique as components of the learning process.
