Task #4 ( 10 minutes)

At the end of the 30 minutes we will have each group report out their work so that we can both peer review their writing as well as get familiar with who is working on what case and to what purpose.

Task #5 (30 minutes)

The last 30 minutes of the class today is reserved for doing the trial prep work for your specific role. For example, if you are in charge of delivering the opening argument you will be writing your opening argument. Make sure to share your trial prep work with both me and your team mates! It is imperative that your team mates have your work so that they can cover your roll in trial should you have to be absent.
