The course is designed to expose the student to the arc of an employment case – from demand letter through summary judgment ruling, from both the plaintiff and defense perspective. Students will have the opportunity to draft a variety of documents typical in an employment case, alternating between documents submitted by the plaintiff and those submitted by the defense.
