[ Litigation ] Criminal Law: General

Why it is relevant for ...

[ Litigation ] as a Related Elective for those interested in Litigation : This course is an obvious choice for students interested in providing direct legal services or practicing in other areas of public interest law where they are likely to be in the courtroom. Many legal aid offices do not have the resources to train new lawyers in trial work, so this course fills the gap by providing "hands-on" practice in questioning witnesses and applying other principles of evidence to real trial problems.

General course Description:

Public interest lawyers often spend much of their time in the courtroom. Yet, prosecution, defender, and legal aid offices usually do not have the resources to train their lawyers in trial work. This course seeks to help remedy this deficiency by helping students who plan to do public interest work develop witness interrogation skills. Students will apply their theoretical grasp of evidence to concrete trial problems involving the direct and cross examination of lay and expert witnesses, the introduction of documentary evidence, and the use of illustrative evidence in California and federal courts. The goal is to train students in the art of examining friendly and hostile witness and in the use of documentary and illustrative evidence. The text will be Méndez, Evidence: The California Code and the Federal Rules -- A Problem Approach (West 5th ed. 2012) and additional course materials. Special Instructions: The course will be limited to 6 students who will be selected by the professor. Credit is contingent on attending all classes and participating in all exercises. Participation is crucial to the success of the course, as students will be working in teams of three. Do not take this course unless you are willing and able to participate fully and can accept criticism. Evidence (Law 290) is a prerequisite. CONSENT APPLICATION: To apply for this course, students must complete and e-mail the Consent Application Form available on the SLS Registrar's Office website (see Registration and Selection of Classes for Stanford Law Students) to the instructor. See Consent Application Form for submission deadline. Elements used in grading: Attendance and class participation.
