Students prepared arguments for two hypothetical cases. Their arguments were presented before Alaska Court of Appeals Judge Marjorie Allard who rendered a decision after each case was presented. Prof. Deb Periman, J.D., monitored the students' arguments.
Prior to the oral arguments, students prepared briefs on their cases and submitted them to their opposing counsel team and to Prof. Fortson and Judge Allard. Earlier in the semester, the students also participated in a simulated trial, conducting opening statements, direct and cross examinations, and closing arguments.
