PARA 306 - TRIAL & POST-TRIAL LITIGATION

This course covers the preparation of a case for trial, the trial process and the post-trial process. The focus of the course is the preparation of a case for trial, or the "100 Days Before Trial". Final trial preparation includes developing a last minute trial strategy that considers what became known during the discovery phase, preparing exhibits, subpoenaing and contacting witnesses and preparing them for testimony, preparing trial briefs, preparing motions to exclude evidence and preparing jury instructions. Students prepare a trial notebook that includes witness question outlines, exhibits, motions in limine, a trial brief and jury instructions.
