Civil Litigation Drafting

This seminar covers the preparation of civil litigation papers in a trial court.  Students analyze the legal issues raised by a hypothetical fair housing case, develop litigation strategies, and draft various litigation documents including complaints, answers, discovery requests and responses, affidavits, memoranda of law, and settlement letters.

Important: A student may enroll in only one Advanced Legal Writing course each semester. Further, a student may not repeat any advanced Legal Writing course (all sections of Commercial Drafting and I.P. Drafting count as the same course). None of the drafting courses satisfies the writing requirement.
