This is the second semester of a full-year required course designed to introduce students to legal analysis, legal research and legal communication. Students learn to construct legal arguments using the analytical skills acquired during their first semester. They also build on the research skills that they learned in their first semester to independently research the law needed to support their arguments. They then communicate their arguments by writing a trial level brief for their instructors, and by arguing their cases before legal professionals from the local bar who act as judges. Note the course begins in the second week of the bridge session.
