Advocacy Skills Workshop – Arbitration Techniques

This Week’s Workshop:

This week’s Skills Workshop, the last for the Fall 2014 semester, will focus on basic skills used in a typical commercial arbitration.  No familiarity with the 2014 Skills Workshop Case File is needed.  This workshop will be of particular interest to those students planning to participate in the spring semester’s Arbitration Competition.

General Information:

The Advocacy Programs are sponsoring a series of brown-bag lunch workshops every Tuesday and Wednesday during the fall semester, from 12:40 to 1:40 in the Tyson Room (S307). (No experience in courtroom practice is necessary to participate!)  Designed to give 2L and 3L 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.  The same material will be covered in both the Tuesday and Wednesday training sessions each week.  The workshops will be taught by Prof. Jeffrey Brooks and the coaches of the Advocacy Programs.

Students planning to participate in the Workshops should familiarize themselves with the 2014 Skills Workshops Case File, available on the Advocacy Programs website.
