Advanced Appellate Advocacy

Course Number: LAW 849, ULSR OR ULWR
Course Credits: 3
The purpose of this course is to develop and practice the skills necessary for effective appellate advocacy: persuasive brief-writing and compelling oral argument. Through a combination of readings, class discussions and written and oral exercises, students will hone their appellate skills by briefing and arguing an assigned moot court case, culminating in the Grand Moot competition, from which Pace's National Moot Court Team and other moot court competition teams are selected. The class meets for three hours once each week throughout the semester. Enrollment is limited to second-year students pre-selected by the faculty.
