Course Descriptions

Fact Investigation and Discovery LAW-683

Civil litigators spend significant time conducting pretrial investigation of the facts of a case and developing evidence. Effective pretrial advocacy requires thorough investigation of the facts of a case through interviewing clients and witnesses, conducting and responding to formal methods of written and documentary discovery, including e-discovery, and taking and defending party and third-party depositions. This course will expose students to the fundamentals of fact investigation and discovery in the context of a single case from the initial client interview through depositions.
