Professor James E. Moliterno, the Vincent Bradford Professor of Law at Washington and Lee, recently published his book, The Litigation Department Lawyer (West 2011).
The book includes substantive material on civil procedure, evidence, and lawyer ethics, but the bulk of the book is devoted to sets of materials that students will use, directed by their professor, to create an elaborate simulation of litigation department practice. These simulations mimic a series of isolated activities of different litigation department types, as well as to create a running, connected event, based on a single matter. Along the way, students will gain experience in discovery, pleadings, and motion drafting for an array of purposes before finally taking the matter to trial.
The book can be purchased at Amazon here.
Congratulations to Professor Moliterno.
