Course Outline: This upper-level writing course will teach skills necessary for a practicing lawyer while learning substantive aspects of Texas and federal consumer law. It is designed to enable students to learn to practice using various resources such as CLE articles, statutes, case law, practice guides, local rules, and judges rules to complete the assignments. There will also be a small presentation or oral argument component graded on a “good faith effort” completion. Students will work to improve their writing, fact investigation/review, and research skills. The course will require the completion of several short writing assignments. Drafts of the assignments will be reviewed with the instructor for feedback.

Course Notes: (Face-to-Face)  The UH registration system instruction mode for this course is listed in parenthesis. After student registration opens, there may be instruction mode changes to this course up through two weeks before the first day of classes for the term, but notice of such changes will be sent to then-registered students. For this instruction mode, instructors and students are expected to normally be physically present in the classroom. If the course has a final examination, it will be in a classroom requiring your physical presence. Other assessment, such as a mid-term exam, may also be in a classroom. Whether this instructor will offer “remote presence” (starting a zoom meeting from the podium computer to enable student remote access on an occasional basis) for part or all of the semester is not known, but students should not rely on an expectation that remote presence will be available.

There is no final exam.
