Santa Clara University School of Law


Hi, everyone!

Thanks for a great Saturday. We appreciate you bringing your full energy to our simulations -- that's what makes them valuable.

I've added links to the powerpoints for day two below. One more day with 2-3 more powerpoints, but we've covered most of the bases.

Tomorrow we'll discuss your topics for your final papers -- even if you only have an initial idea, be ready to share your thoughts around how you might approach it.

We will see you Sunday morning at 9am in room 205... Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
