Course Description

“Evidence for Litigators” is a four-credit basic evidence course that covers the same rules and doctrines as the regular Evidence course, but uses an active-learning approach. Rather than a traditional socratic lecture, the class meetings will emphasize discussions of problems, group work, and litigation-skills exercises and simulations. In place of a traditional final exam, students will do a final project based on analyzing a realistic case file and will write and argue an evidence motion. The course is recommended both for students who are interested in a civil or criminal litigation practice, as well as students who feel they would benefit from a hands-on learning approach to the rules of evidence.
