The course continues in the spring (Fall Law 6002 - 1 credit; Spring Law 6003 - 3 credits) with a focus on statutory law. Students learn the basic doctrines of statutory interpretation while preparing a trial court (persuasive) brief. Students work through building block assignments in researching and drafting the brief. Students also learn the basic guidelines for formal oral argument, and the semester concludes with two rounds of oral argument. The semester also includes additional research training, focused on statutory law, individual conferences with instructors, and peer review.
