Litigation Technology (6350)

This course will teach law students interested in becoming trial lawyers how to integrate technology into their trial presentations. Students will learn how to apply principles of persuasion to the creation of courtroom visuals which they will then present in the trial advocacy portion of the course. The course will use hypothetical problems and cases to allow students to develop presentations that persuade and will include six weeks of computer lab sections and lecture. The remaining eight weeks will be devoted to student participation in advocacy exercises and trials with instructor critique. Students will try both a civil case and a criminal case in this course. Students should own their own laptop computers and be prepared to bring them to class every week. The machine must be Windows-compatible.
