The course will introduce the form and writing style of an appellate brief and cover oral argument before an appellate panel. In addition, the course will have a legal research component that will explore advanced search strategies in traditional legal resources as well as introduce students to useful non-legal sources. All students will be required to research and write a complete appellate brief and make an oral argument; students will complete several smaller assignments designed to prepare them to complete these larger assignments.
