Course Description

LAW 795 - Advanced Trial Advocacy: Using Real-World Jury Trials to Master Trial Techniques

This course is a deep dive into developing trial advocacy skills, using two actual civil commercial cases that were tried to juries in Los Angeles.  The course materials will use the actual emails, text exchanges and trial exhibits and transcripts from the trials in two cases: Jane Doe v. NBA Player, Hampton and Allen; and Scott Howard v. Lisa Kudrow.  The Jane Doe case was a sexual battery case; the jury trial was in 2016 and the oral argument in front of the 9th Circuit is scheduled for this November. The Howard v. Kudrow case as a breach of oral contract case involving the syndication revenues for the television show, “Friends,” tried to a jury in 2015.
