Curriculum

Advanced Appellate Advocacy

B528 is taught by M. Janis, Lahn

This course provides a structure for the Fall 2019 semesters academic work of the Sherman Minton Executive Advocacy Board, including: researching and writing the moot court case problem, bench memo, and scoring rubrics; and serving as teaching assistants for the 2L Appellate Advocacy course by developing a case problem for, and then judging and critiquing, practice oral arguments early in the semester. Enrollment is mandatory for, and limited to, students selected for the Executive Advocacy Board. Because work on the moot court case problem must be finished before the school year starts, all board members will have research, analysis, and writing responsibilities over the 2019 spring and summer months. Once school starts in the fall well meet once weekly, at a time that is mutually available. Please feel free to contact Prof. Lahn with any questions. (Pass/Fail.)
