Course Description

This course is for students who will represent Pitt Law in an appellate-style external competition. The course will support and enhance both the brief-writing and oral argument aspects of competition participation. You will deepen your skills in identifying a theme for your case, crafting a compelling story, effectively teaching through your writing, and editing your own work product. You will also learn and practice oral advocacy skills with a focus on careful listening, persuasive response, and smooth transitions. Through class exercises, reflection, and self-assessment, you will prepare both for your competition and for the most exciting aspect of your legal career: continuous learning and growth.
