This experiential learning course will provide simulation experiences for all phases of appellate advocacy, from post-trial motions through cert. petitions. We will develop case studies based on trials that present numerous issues for appeal, then use these studies as the foundation for exploration of each step of the appellate process.  Students will
strategize appellate choices, learn the importance of issue preservation, become conversant with Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, and apply their brief writing and oral advocacy skills.  Experienced appellate advocates will work with the students and provide insight.
