LAW 702: Criminal Motion Practice
Prerequisite: LAW 521
Intensive practical skills course where students make oral arguments every week. Students put learning into practice in order to polish and sharpen their advocacy skills. Students will engage in adversarial experiences instead of simply reading cases about them. They will learn to apply substantive law in practical situations; master the skill of properly making arguments and convincing others of their position; and enjoy the invaluable advantage of free practice runs. Using a hands-on, learning-by-doing approach, students will have the opportunity to experiment with their approaches to making arguments and develop their own individual styles of courtroom advocacy.
