Course Details

Clinic Practice: Federal Criminal Appellate Practice

Student attorneys work collaboratively in two teams of three students on their primary cases, and work as a unified whole on all of the clinic cases. In their primary appeals, students will take the case from start to finish-from research and briefing in the fall and early winter through oral argument in the spring. NOTE: only 3Ls may participate in oral argument, and participation is not guaranteed. The pedagogical goals are to develop advanced legal-research, legal-writing, analytical and appellate-advocacy skills, to expose students to the intricacies of representing a client on appeal, and to introduce students to the substantive areas of the law in an in-depth and hands-on way. Teamwork and a collegial atmosphere are extremely important in real law practice and those skills are emphasized here. Because the nature of appellate work and the briefing timeline is not limited to one semester, students are strongly encouraged to sign up for a full academic year. REGISTRATION RESTRICTIONS: 3Ls should bid only on Section 1 2Ls should bid only on Section 2 PRE-REQUISITES/COREQUISITE CRIM 610 Constitutional Criminal Procedure and LITARB 630A/630H/630J Evidence are strongly recommended, but not required. LITARB 621 Appellate Advocacy is recommended as a pre-req, and should not be taken as a co-req.
