This course in Federal Appellate Advocacy will select a recent case on appeal from a Circuit Court, where Certiorari has been granted by the U.S. Supreme Court. There will be an emphasis in the course on the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, an examination of jurisdiction and standards of review. Students will be paired up to write a brief, present oral argument, decide the case and write an opinion. There may be an opportunity to view oral argument before the Third Circuit in Pittsburgh and arrangements will be made to allow students to visit the U.S. Supreme Court to hear oral argument on the selected case.
