Case Files for Basic Trial Advocacy

Case Files For Basic Trial Advocacy


The second edition of these case files include a variety of civil and criminal fact patterns that provide students the opportunity to try their hand at opening statements and closing arguments, as well as at direct and cross-examinations. The case files also provide opportunities for pretrial motion exercises and jury selection exercises. There is a companion text book entitled The Art & Science of Trial Advocacy by the same group of authors. These case files are a manageable length for weekly or bi-weekly assignments. These case files also include online videos demonstrating all stages of trial advocacy and an extensive teacher's manual with illustrations and examples. The following case files are included: United States of America v. William Stevens (criminal case alleging bank robbery); Jeffrey Kent v. Bonds Rentals(civil case alleging failure to warn); State of Golden v. Steven MacNamara (criminal case alleging domestic violence); James Price v. GEM Corporation (civil case alleging unlawful termination); Rusty Maxell v. Terry Chester (civil case alleging breach of contract); State of Golden v.
