Ethics for Trial Lawyers (LAW-915-001)
Guggenheim, Uston

Meets: 08:00 PM - 09:50 PM (W) - Room 415

Enrolled: 13 / Limit: 14


Prerequisite: LAW-550 or LAW-551


This class surveys the ethical terrain for litigators in both the criminal and civil context. The course uses case law, bar opinions, and role play exercises developed by the National Institute of Trial Advocacy (NITA) to allow students to identify and resolve ethical issues through simulated exercises. This course is a practical, exercise driven course that sensitizes students to the common conflicts that arise in litigation, informs them of the rules that govern their conduct, and allows them to work through conflicts in a safe environment where mistakes are not costly to themselves or their clients.
