Description

Criminal Trial Advocacy courses are based on trial simulations, practical instruction, learning by doing, and feedback from faculty and fellow students. The courses focus on case theory, trial strategy and tactics, opening statements, examination of witnesses, and closing arguments. In these courses student-attorneys try three fictitious cases. Students try the final case in a courtroom before a real judge and jury panel of undergraduate students. Cases are tried under the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure and Evidence. Each section has two instructors, a judge and a law professor or attorney experienced in litigation. Special features of these classes are in-class discussions by a professional actor on the use of techniques to communicate more effectively and a homicide detective on the basics of criminal investigations. Criminal Procedure and Evidence are pre- or co-requisites for Criminal Trial Advocacy.
