Posting date: Jul 25, 2013 @ 10:29:23
Please bring the State v. Chambers Casebook to the first class.
Assignments will be made at our first class for the rest of the
semester. All exercises will be filmed and available online for
Wear casual clothes to class. Be prepared to make a 3 minute
presentation to the class at our first meeting. The presentation
can involve any topic or your personal background that will get and
keep everyone's attention, and be persuasive as to why everyone
should like and trust you.
This class is all about tactics, strategy and preparation. So be
humorous if that fits, or serious, or some of both. Three minutes
doesn't seem very long but it will feel like a ifetime.
We are going to learn how to make people like, respect and trust us,
and how to win in the courtroom.
I look forward to meeting everyone and sharing this semester with
Judge Larry Gist
