The course is designed as a bridge to practice for students interested in a litigation career and should be of particular interest to students who intend to practice in large law firms or at firms of any size that handle business or "rights-based" litigation. The class begins with several classes covering relevant doctrine. For most of the semester, however, students will work individually and as part of small “firms” of 2-4 students to represent one party to a dispute, based on factual materials I will provide. Students will be responsible for identifying the best way to pursue the client’s goals, preparing the necessary legal documents, and completing written assignments both as part of a group and individually. There is no exam. Each student will complete at least two written exercises of approximately 10 pages in length, and will be required to re-write at least one of these exercises after receiving feedback from me.
