The instructors will be part of a team of part-time faculty who will train students in trial or pretrial litigation skills under the direction of full-time faculty. UCLA faculty will provide the curriculum, including teaching notes and simulation exercise materials.
- Simulation-based course designed to introduce first year law students to the attorney-client relationship through the skill of client interviewing and to provide students with an overview of the professional and ethical obligations that are integral to the relationship between a lawyer and client. Instructors must work with organizations that are able to provide pro bono client interviewing opportunities for up to twenty students. UCLA faculty will provide the curriculum and teaching notes.
- Companion seminars for externships/field placements in public interest organizations, criminal justice, in-house/transactional law, public service/civil government, and federal and state judges’ chambers. UCLA faculty will provide the curriculum.
