Teaching case analysis is always a challenge. The skill of case analysis is critical for our courses and mock trial teams - and for a career in litigation. While jury addresses, witness examinations, and motions in limine involve case analysis, we miss something when this skill is not isolated from other parts of trial presentation. We sought to better segregate the skill of case analysis and diagnose related issues independently. We focused more on case analysis in our advocacy curriculum and created a consistent, written requirement (expectation) to segregate the the skill of case analysis.
