The goal of the course is to familiarize students with all aspects of the scientific expert in the courtroom both on direct and cross examination.
In addition, a series of litigation-related research and writing exercises will be assigned. These may take the form of office memoranda, pretrial motions and memoranda of points and authorities, appellate briefs, or court opinions in simulated cases. Grades will be based on the written and oral exercises and answers to problems. These will be critiqued by the instructors, and there will be opportunities for rewriting. Some federal judges and experts will participate in teaching the course and evaluating the exercises.
