TOPICS IN CONSTITUTIONAL LAW AND APPELLATE ADVOCACY Each year this course will focus on detailed analysis of two related constitutional questions that are presented in a hypothetical case problem. The selected constitutional questions will reflect important public policy issues that are currently being litigated in the lower courts, but have not yet reached the Supreme Court. Students will research the relevant authorities cited in the case problem, argue the case before a moot court, and learn to write analytical briefs, legal memoranda, and persuasive briefs. May be taken more than once. May be repeated. Annually. Fall. [W]
