Sign ups for Civil Litigation Court Observation
The spring dates for the Civil Litigation Court observation opportunity have been set for March 8 and March 22.
Sign ups will take place in the clinic offices from January 29 through February 8. Registration is first come, first served and spaces are limited. Second-year students as well as third-year students may register for this opportunity. 3LS are given priority. If you attended a court observation last year, you need not attend again this year.
Remember, this is a professional commitment; if you sign up you are expected to attend.
Our partner in this program is the Academy of Trial Lawyers of Allegheny County – we owe them a debt of gratitude for the time and energy that they have committed in planning a day that will be informative and useful to you. Experienced trial attorneys have volunteered to be your guides through the civil court system. The observation takes place downtown in the Court of Common Pleas Civil Division from 8:30 until mid-afternoon. Professional dress is required.
