This Week’s Workshop: Basics of Exhibits and Objections

General Information:

The Advocacy Programs are sponsoring a series of brown-bag breakfast workshops every Tuesday (Room 212) and Wednesday (Room 303) during the Fall 2016 semester.  Workshops will be held both days from 9:00 am to 9:50 am.

Designed to give students exposure to a number of different courtroom skills, these workshops will complement participation in the many internal competitions offered at LSU, and also to assist students in developing skills that may be assessed in the Advocacy Programs’ moot court and trial advocacy team tryouts.

Participation is completely voluntary, signing up is not required, attendance will not be taken, and students may elect to participate in some but not all of the workshops at their option.  No preparation is required.  No experience in courtroom practice is necessary.  The same material will be covered in both the Tuesday and Wednesday training sessions each week, so that students can select the workshop day that best suits their schedule.  The workshops will be taught by Prof. Jeffrey Brooks and the coaches of the Advocacy Programs.
