The University of Cincinnati College of Law offers a general trial practice course every semester, taught by trial attorneys with extensive experience in the courtroom and the classroom. Our spring semester trial practice course is taught by Attorneys Charles G. Atkins and Thomas L. Stachler and provides hands-on preparation for the courtroom.
The fall semester trial practice competition course similarly prepares students for the courtroom, but with an eye toward trial practice team readiness for inter-school competitions. The course is taught by Honorable Carl Stich, Jr., recently appointed to the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas, Joseph Heyd, Head of Global Litigation at The Procter & Gamble Company, and Nicholas Bunch, partner at White, Getgey & Meyer Co., L.P.A . In many years, the UC College of Law offers a trial practice course focused on the criminal defense. UC Law also offers related and advanced courses for trial work, including witness preparation and pre-trial discovery.
