Civil Litigation Drafting
This seminar covers the preparation of civil litigation papers in a trial court. Students analyze the legal issues raised by hypothetical fact patterns, develop litigation strategies, and prepare litigation documents such as complaints, answers, discovery requests, affidavits, settlement agreements, letters to clients, and memoranda of law. Different instructors use hypotheticals in different areas of the law but all sections cover the basic principles of effective civil litigation drafting. 3 credits.
