Overview

This book is cut in a new mould and suitable for an emerging format of law school course. This book supports a course on the lawyer in a law firm litigation department. It includes substantive material on procedure and evidence, and is predominantly devoted to sets of materials that students will use, directed by their professor, to create an elaborate simulation of litigation department practice. The materials will place the students in a variety of typical litigation department settings, requiring them to engage outside the course-book legal materials to successfully engage the various activities into which the simulation materials lead them. The simulation materials will be of two types. First, some materials will be usable to create a series of isolated activities of different litigation department types. Second, one set of simulation materials will create a running, connected event, based on a single matter that the students can walk through step by litigation step.
