    Grading

    Students will be expected to write a seminar paper which proposes and supports a revision of—or an amendment to—one of the American Bar Association’s Defense or Prosecution Function Standards. In addition to classroom meetings, students are required to meet individually with the instructor during the semester to discuss their progress on their seminar paper. Students will also be expected to give an oral presentation to the class on their seminar paper topic. Final grades will be based on four criteria: classroom participation, presentation, first draft of the seminar paper, and improvements in the final draft of the seminar paper.
