This three-credit hour class focuses on one aspect of practice of law-argument in front of an appellate court, in this case the United States Supreme Court. Students work with partners to prepare oral arguments and/or legal briefs on a case involving an important set of constitutional principles, then either participate in the American Moot Court Association regional program or submit a written brief in the brief writing contest. The class uses a minimum of lecture and focuses instead on developing the ability to read, analyze and synthesize Supreme Court decisions, allowing students to apply the concepts from class to a simulated constitutional law case.
