Students will learn principles of court proceedings, terminology, objections and will participate in mock trials. Public speaking is required and peer review is a regular aspect of this course. Please be aware that students will receive constructive criticism as well as being placed in areas they may not personally agree with.

This is a very demanding course and will require extensive outside reading and research.
