​Writing a factum in law school is one thing, writing one for the Court is an entirely different matter! Real clients are involved, with real consequences. Could you use another opportunity to try your hand at a factum assignment? Our presenters are ready to guide you. You learn to consider, at the outset, your approach and reason for writing the factum, and then how to write a clear overview statement, set out the facts, and frame the issues.

  • Hear from experienced counsel and judges on best practices
  • Determine and discuss ethical issues which may arise
