Prosecution Clinic

Law School Description

This class teaches litigation skills through the prosecution of real, minor criminal cases and the simulation of a major civil trial. After about three weeks of classroom discussions and simulations, students prosecute real traffic and misdemeanor cases for the Prosecuting Attorney's Office. The classroom component meets throughout the semester and is designed to meet the needs of students interested in both civil and criminal litigation.  Courtroom work is supervised by Assistant Prosecuting Attorneys.  Simulated cases are critiqued by the faculty and practicing lawyers. The course can be taken as a 2, 3 or 4 credit class. The 2 and 3-credit options have fewer court appearances and class meetings, and does not include the mock civil trial which uses expert witnesses.  Co-requisite: Evidence (LAW 543).
