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.

If you have already taken or are currently taking the Criminal Litigation Experience class, you are not eligible to take this class.
