ITAP Trial Advocacy Form
You have chosen this link to register for the 2013 combined Evidence/Trial Advocacy course (ITAP). As you see in the 2012-13 registration information, in the Spring of 2013 you will attend:
- Evidence class, Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Thursday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. for four (4) credit hours; and
- One of the Trial Advocacy lectures — either on Monday from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. or Monday from 5:05 p.m. to 6:05 p.m. You may attend either one, and may change your attendance from week to week; the only requirement is that you attend one hour of lecture; and
- One of the two-hour Trial Advocacy practice sessions, listed on the Preference Form below. Trial Advocacy carries three (3) credit hours. Because the Trial Advocacy Sections are held only at certain times, and several of these conflict with other course listings you may be choosing, we need to determine now (July 2012) whether we will be able to accommodate you in the course.
If you register online, register only by choosing ITAP Evidence (Course No. DE178) and by filling out the ITAP Trial Advocacy Preference Form below. On the Preference Form indicate your availability for ALL the sections you could attend, in your order of preference (e.g., First Choice, Second Choice, etc.); choose "Will not accept" if you are unable to attend due to other classes.
We do our best to give you your first preference, but due to class size (12 students per section) that is not always possible.
For additional information, contact Professor Jay Leach, in the Center for Legal Advocacy at 916.739.7002.
Any student failing to submit the ITAP Trial Advocacy Preference Form will not be registered in the course.
If you register online, register only by filling out the Trial Advocacy Form. Hard-copy versions of the form are available in the Registrar's Office.
The ITAP Evidence/Trial Advocacy class will be "enrolled" in the week of July 16, 2012; any registrations made after 5 p.m.on July 16 will automatically be placed on the course Wait List.
Note: If you state a preference for only one or two slots, we may find the course is "oversubscribed" for those slots and we will have to remove some students from the ITAP course by lottery. It is therefore in your interest to check as many slots as you can.
