Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

This seminar will explore federal appellate practice in the Supreme Court of the United States and the federal courts of appeal from the perspective of a litigator with insights from the bench. The focus of the course will primarily be on procedural and substantive constitutional issues pending before the Supreme Court of the United States, but issues percolating in the federal courts of appeal may be addressed as well. Students will each argue two cases currently pending on the Supreme Court's docket, and will write one brief in either a pending Supreme Court or court of appeals case. Students will also participate as judges, with the faculty, in some cases and also, on occasion, be required to make a brief argument on short notice on issues raised in class.
