28740 - Intensive Trial Skills
** This course meets the Professional Skills requirement for graduation.

Description
This class is a more rigorous and competitive class and will move at a much faster pace than Advocacy Survey.  The class does not require formal training, but does require an interest and dedication beyond that of the basic class.  Students will try 3 or 4 cases throughout the course of the semester:  2 solo mini-trials and 2 full trials with partners.  Cases will be both civil and criminal, and the class will particularly emphasize cross-examination skills.  All classes will occur during the day.  This is a 4-credit course graded on a pass/fail basis offered only during the fall semester.

Prerequisites:  Advocacy Survey and Evidence (can be taken concurrently).
