LAW 2962 - Fact Investigation

This course will introduce students to methods for investigating, organizing, and analyzing facts relevant to litigation, transactional matters, and public policy advocacy and will provide them with hands-on experience in developing fact theory in their cases. Students will work in teams investigating and analyzing one or more simulated or actual matters. Techniques and skills covered include interviewing, working with experts, obtaining documents and other information through freedom of information laws, effective use of Internet and print resources, methods for marshaling evidence, and the use of computers to manage and analyze large quantities of factual information. The course touches on the discovery process, but is not intended to replace Law 2823 (Discovery Skills I and II: Written Discovery and Depositions), which focuses on formal discovery in civil litigation.
