Notes
Topic: Legal Advocacy 2: Moot Court The goal of this class is to learn how to argue a case before the U.S. Supreme Court. Students will study a specific area of constitutional law and apply their legal knowledge in a written and oral argument of a simulated Supreme Court case. The course includes online and face-to-face sessions on how to analyze court cases, how to construct a legal argument, and how to build public speaking skills. Students will have opportunities to practice their arguments, respond to questioning, and provide feedback to other students. This hybrid course requires both classroom and online time; reliable internet access and computer literacy; and the ability to self-manage independent learning assignments according to deadlines. In place of reduced classroom hours, required online work is connected to classroom learning and may include independent mastery assignments, discussion boards, videos with quizzes, writing assignments, and other active learning experiences. Students are responsible for both classroom attendance and completing these out-of-classroom learning experiences by the specified deadlines and in accordance with instructor requirements.
