Appellate Advocacy - Fall 2006

The case argued by the students in this class during the Fall of 2006 was

State v. James.

The moot court case was loosely based on the real cases of State v. Elkwisni, 190 N.J. 169 (2007) and State v. Williams, 192 N.J. 1 (2007), raising issues as to the admissibility of post-arrest silence where defendant testifies that he made statements and the use of evidence of post-shooting conduct to prove the crime of reckless manslaughter, respectively.
