mock trial help

Postby Jojo » Thu Mar 04, 2010 11:10 am

If anyone knows anything about the NITA Case Dixon v. Providential life, I could really use some strategies. Non-graded class, so this is not cheating. I am representing the Widow and right now we seem screwed - looks like a suicide. If you you have any ideas - especially about the angle of the wound - please post.

Read the cases again looking for factual distinctions. You are ethically required to disclose disadvantageous cases when writng briefs. Also, look precedents you can enlarge to fit your cases. That's all I can think of.

There are no cases as it is mock trial, not moot court. Thanks for trying to help though :)

Jojo, how'd you do representing the plaintiff last year? We have the same mock trial assignment this semester and I'm looking for suggestions on how to combat what appears to be a stronger defendant's case. Anything in particular work/not work for your side?
