Law Firm Program: Litigation (7140)

This course will provide students the opportunity to engage in simulated litigation practice relating to the post-acquisition operation of a soap manufacturing company. Students will assume the role of an associate in a law firm, participating in certain aspects of the prosecution or defense of various civil claims. Students will have the opportunity to communicate regularly with the senior partner on the matter. Research and drafting exercises will be assigned throughout the course. The course is designed to expose students to the forces they will likely encounter in actual litigation practice: time pressure, communication challenges, uncertainty and lack of information, and organizational dynamics in the client and the firm.
