LAW414 Appellate Advocacy
In this course, students study appellate practice and procedure, the appellate process, appellate court rules, writ practice, and strategies for structuring a case for appellate review. Students prepare and submit a formal appellate brief and participate in an
oral argument competition.
(Students who have completed one of the on-campus clinical programs (Housing Advocacy, Legal Clinic for Elders, or Children, Families & the Law Internship), or who have completed a significant off-campus internship placement with demonstrated experience in litigation and/or appellate practice, may seek a waiver of EITHER Trial Advocacy or Appellate Advocacy. If approved, the waiver relieves the student of the requirement that credit be earned in the waived course. Waiver of a course does NOT confer unit credit.)
