Law 727 - Supreme Court Simulation

Faculty listed in alphabetical order – please see faculty specific description for requisite information.

R. Azad A. Winkler


General Course Description:

This course will offer students the chance to simulate oral argument and decision-making in the Supreme Court of the United States. Each class will revolve around a single current case before the Justices and will include an hour of oral argument and an hour of “conference” (when the Justices discuss and decide the case). Students will argue the cases and write opinions. This course is designed to enhance presentation and writing skills, while covering an array of high-profile legal issues. The particular cases chosen will depend on the docket of a given term, but will focus largely on constitutional cases and other controversies of unusual significance. This course is not designed to satisfy the substantial analytical writing requirement.
