It is envisaged that there will be one, three hour class per week. The classes will be used to discuss appellate procedure, the ethics of appellate representation, issue spotting and the art of persuasive argument. Classes will also be set aside for discussion and analysis of a trial transcript. An excursion is envisaged to the Court of Criminal Appeal.
