Discovery Drafting

This seminar covers the preparation of civil discovery papers and related documents in a trial court.  Students will analyze the discovery issues raised by hypothetical fact patterns, learn how the discovery process fits within the larger pre-trial preparation process, and draft various discovery-related documents such as initial disclosures, interrogatories, requests for production, and requests for admissions.  Students will also consider special problems caused by electronic discovery, foreign discovery, and privilege disputes.  3 credits.
