Witness Lab Simulation: Performance in Trial Advocacy with Judge Timothy Connors and Margaret Connors

This class interaction with the Witness Lab project is open to the public for observation. Seating is limited. 

In her investigation of our legal system, McClellan’s practice engages K-12 and university classes across a spectrum of disciplines including law, drama, anthropology, and more. Visit our website for an ever-evolving list of opportunities to see the Witness Lab project in action. 

Judge Timothy Connors and Margaret Connors will teach vital lessons from their lauded U-M trial advocacy class. Law students and viewers will consider the importance of performance and movement when mediating a case. Traditional courtroom negotiations will be addressed, as well as alternative forms of adjudication.

Witness Lab is presented in partnership with the Roman J. Witt Artist in Residence Program of the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design, with lead support provided by the University of Michigan Law School and Office of the Provost.
