LAW SCHOOL TRIAL TOURNAMENT. January 7-10, 2007. Open to anyone.
TRIAL COMPETITION TEAM. There will be at least 8 slots open to 2-Ls on the trial team. Selections will be made based on your performance in the Law School Trial Tournament, January 7-10, 2007. The first competition will be in February 2007.
In my courses, your behavior is at all times covered by the Model Rules of Professional Conduct . The classroom will be considered the equivalent of a
hearing in a courtroom, with me as the judge, except that the dress code is waived. Violations of the rules may result in your being held in contempt or
brought up on disciplinary charges. In either case, you may be "fined" in the form of a point deduction from your final grade.
Grading in this course is based on class attendance and participation, a final trial, and one or more exams and quizzes covering the law, procedure
and ethics of trial practice.
