Students will intensively examine the practical and theoretical underpinnings of appellate practice -- record development; doctrinal analysis for purposes of argument and defense; litigation theory creation; brief writing and amicus strategies; and oral advocacy. An actual case will be used for simulated practice. The professors anticipates that practitioners and judges will speak with students. The course will meet roughly every other week. In off weeks, students will frequently work with the professor by teleconference on assigned exercises.
