Trial Advocacy

Washington University School of Law | 1 credit

Trial Advocacy is a one-credit skills based course. Using a trial as our framework, students will learn such skills as client interviewing and counseling, direct examination, cross-examination, opening and closing arguments, and basic objections. Students will be graded on a variety of skills-based exercises throughout the session, as well as the final project which requires the students to give a closing argument.

* We recommend completing Legal Writing prior to enrolling in this course.
