Federal Criminal Practice (SD 648)


This elective will focus on federal criminal practice with an emphasis on both substantive federal criminal law and procedure and the development of oral advocacy skills. The curriculum will revolve around taking the students through one criminal case in federal court from start to finish, with opportunities for hands-on training at numerous points during the semester. While the course will focus on federal law and practice, many of the concepts will apply equally to students who end up working on criminal cases in state court.
