Courses 2010 - 2011
LAW B521 Trial Advocacy II
This course addresses more advanced trial advocacy issues than are covered in the basic course in Trial Advocacy (B520). Students will select a civil or criminal “track” for their study in this course and work over the course of the two quarters with trial lawyers who specialize in that area of practice on more sophisticated issues of strategy, evidence, creative use of exhibits at trial, technology in the courtroom, and ethics. Weekly classes will meet in the evenings in a downtown courtroom. Students will prepare and present all aspects of a contested case culminating in a complete jury trial before a judge of the King County Superior Court. Offered only as a graded course. Prerequisite: Law B520 Trial Advocacy I and permission of the Director of the Trial Advocacy Program.
