 Information regarding Registration for Trial Practice: If you are planning to take trial practice in the future please read this section carefully.

  • Upper division law students at California Western present jury trials as their final assignment in Trial Practice.
  • Students present a case from beginning to end, including opening statements, direct and cross examination and closing arguments. They then request a jury to return a verdict.
  • After the verdict is delivered, the jury has the opportunity to critique the students' performances and offer them suggestions on how to improve.

We would like to know if you would be willing to serve as a juror in one trial. The trials will take place the last week of summer classes, at 5:00 p.m. Exact dates will be announced. The trials will last approximately four hours (including deliberations and critique).Note: Jury service is a prerequisite for taking Trial Practice.

To register for Trial Practice in the future, you will have had to have served as a juror in a Trial Practice trial. Please call Laurie Farid in the Office of the Vice Dean to sign up for juror service. The deadline to sign up will be announced. For questions, please contact Laurie Farid at (619) 525-1444.

Prerequisites for taking Trial Practice:

  • In order to enroll in Trial Practice, you must serve as a juror in a trial practice trial before you register to take the course. PLEASE NOTE: Jury trials are scheduled during the week prior to the final week of classes and last approximately four (4) hours. If you have not yet completed this requirement but want to take Trial Practice next trimester, sign up for one of the trials this trimester. This will ensure that you will be eligible for the class during the next registration cycle.
  • NOTE: There are specific attendance requirements for Trial Practice that apply to both enrolled students and wait-listed students.
  • First-year students who plan to take Trial Practice in their third trimester must have a minimum grade point average of 2.25 at the time of registration.
  • Evidence is also a prerequisite for Trial Practice. It may also be taken concurrently. Also, please note that the Trial Practice Lecture (#785) is a component of the course and must be taken in conjunction with the small section. If you have any questions, please call the Registrar's Office at (619) 525-1414.
