Course Description:
This is a clinical class that teaches fundamental federal practice and procedure. The paradigm uses a simulated federal criminal case. Half of the class will act as prosecutors throughout the class; the other half, of course, will be defense attorneys. The case will begin with the arrest of the defendant, and culminate in a trial at the end of the semester. We will separately simulate federal sentencing procedures.

This is a hands-on class intended to get students on their feet. Attendance and class participation is required.
