Course Outline: The objective of the course to provide law students with an opportunity to apply the pre-trial rules of Texas civil procedure to a civil case problem. This course will expose students to the use of the rules in an adversarial setting and require students to engage in advocacy, strategic thinking, and logical analysis. Students will receive actual experience in interfacing with clients, drafting pleadings, interpreting the rules, arguing motions in civil district court, mediating, and taking depositions.

Course Notes:   Whether this course will be distance education, or will have a physical room assigned, and if so the extent to which the instructor might use the room during the semester, is not determined at the time when registration initially opens for this course.  You may see contrary indications in the UH systems where you actually register for the course.  In other words, this course might be distance education with no use of a physical classroom. It might be the “HyFlex” mode in which some Law Center courses used a physical room during 2020-21. As we get closer to the start of the term/semester for this course, this course note will be updated as decisions are determined. The instructors will be involved in those decisions, but decisions about modalities may not be invariant throughout the term/semester or between now and when the course starts.
