Employment Litigation

This practice/simulation course will provide students with hands-on skill building in the area of employment litigation. Students will be supervised in handling aspects of actual, ongoing state and federal litigation involving clients from the Detroit and Ann Arbor areas, including interviewing and assessing potential clients, reviewing and troubleshooting employment agreements, preparing discovery, discussing with actual litigants the experience of bringing suit, and responding to and drafting legal motions. The purpose of the course is to expose students to employment litigation, as it is actually practiced, and to build competency with practical litigation skills young lawyers use daily. Employment litigation generally involves a catastrophic loss of financial support and self-actualization on the part of the affected individual, and this course will allow students to grapple with that human side of litigation as they develop their professional skills.
