COURT/INTERVIEW
ASSIGNMENT 50 pointsPlease see the attachment below. There are three option to choose.IF YOU
CHOOSE OPTION 1 (THE INTERVIEW OPTION):

Remember that the interview must be done either in person
(face-to-face, which is the preferred method) or by phone (including Skype). You
may not do this interview by email, texting, or other written e-communication
means (contact me in Conversations/Inbox if this is a problem, especially for
anyone currently in a foreign country). For your interview, make sure you get at
least the following information from the person you interview
(interviewee) (and when I use the word lawyer, please understand that to
also include judge and paralegaljust change lawyer to the applicable
judge or paralegal when you see lawyer below, to make the directions work
for your choice of interviewee):
1) full name
2) office where currently working–firm/military/other government
work/corporation or other business organization?
3) what drove the interviewee to become a lawyer
4) how long the person has been a lawyer, area of law in which the
person is currently working (family law, personal injury, estates, bankruptcy,
etc., for lawyers/paralegals; which court for judge), and whether the person
has switched areas of law in which the person worked
5) what the person likes best about practicing law [or working as
a judge or paralegal]
6) what the person likes least about practicing law [or working as
a judge or paralegal]
7) what was the lawyer’s favorite case to work on? (and maybe also
ask about least favorite?)
8) is the lawyer still happy being a lawyer?
9) your impressions about the law and the legal profession before
and after interviewing the lawyer
10) any advice the lawyer would give you about college, the law,
or the legal profession concerning your future
and then
11) any/all of the things you would like to ask (about which you
are curious) that the interviewee is willing to answer, and will help you
complete two full pages of memorandum!

Your report must be two full pages (not one and one-half pages), double-spaced, and must be in memorandum
(memo) form. Please do not exceed two pages, and please do not use spacing methods or
font size to cram three or four pages of material into two pages (you will lose
points, if you do), or to make your memorandum look lengthier than it is.
Smallest font size allowed would be the equivalent of Times New Roman 12, or Calibri
or Arial 11.

(This is memo form: At the top of the page, the following
four items on the left top side of the page, one item per line, so it looks
like this (and this one part of the memo needs to be single-spaced, not
double-spaced):
To: MSM [these are the instructors initials]
From: (put your name in this space)
Re: Interview of (put the name of the person
interviewed here)
Date:____________
Then, underneath that heading, the body of the memo is your
two-page report).

Do not include any other information at the top of the page (e.g., title of
the course; name of assignment; any headers), besides the four items shown
above.

The body of the memo must be in prose (the body of the
report must be in conventional paragraph form, without headings, and paragraphs
are not to be numbered), rather than reported as a straight question and
answer interview. (Do not just put, e.g., the text of question 1, and quote
the interviewees answer to question 1.) Also, do not just make your
paragraphs a series of quotes from the intervieweethis is your paper, and
therefore should include your words, not the interviewees. You may
paraphrase your interviewees words, for the memo, but please do not include
more than four brief (one sentence) quotes.

When you save and name your
document, please be sure to include your name in the document name, so I don’t
have to open the file to find out whose memo it is (e.g., if Tim is submitting
his memo of his interview of an attorney, he would name his document
(when he saves it) as Tim-XianzhongChenIntervMemoSum16SecB). (The Sum16 is
the quarter, followed by the section, Section B; he puts the name by which he
is known in the course first, followed by his official roster name.) Also, please
save your document as Rich Text Format, so Ill be able to open it.
(If I cant open it, I cant give you a grade.)

If you need/wish to choose this option, because you cannot make it to court,
please do not wait until the last minute to try to find someone to interview..0001pt;”>IF YOU
CHOOSE OPTION 2 (THE COURT VISIT ON YOUR OWN OPTION):Visit one of the federal, appellate, or superior
courts in Washington, and observe a court hearing. A local district
court, small claims court, or municipal court proceeding (like one where you
might have contested a traffic ticket, county or town) is not acceptable. You may visit the court with others in the
course, but remember that this is not the group assignmenteach students memorandum
must be his or her own work. The matter you observe can be a civil trial, or a
hearing on a “motion,” or any other similar judicial proceeding.
The subject matter of a legal proceeding that involves a civil matter
might include a contract dispute, ownership of property, environmental issues,
property development, probate, sales of goods, business or personal torts,
professional negligence/liability (malpractice), family law or even bankruptcy
proceedings. I would prefer that you not report on a criminal matter, as
we really cover criminal law more as it involves business, in this course,
unless the matter involves, e.g., white collar crime (connected with some otherwise
legal business endeavor). For instance, if you went to federal district
court to view a preliminary hearing for someone who was being prosecuted for
wrongful accounting procedures, in violation of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, that
would be appropriate. The idea is to find something that you find
interesting, but if there are no civil or business/criminal cases available,
then please just observe what you can. It might well be necessary for you to
observe two or three different hearings before you pick one about which to
write your report. You need to find out when the court starts (usually by
somewhere between 9:00 and 10:00 a.m.) and to try to check in with the court
clerk or bailiff before the judge comes out onto the bench. You can ask
court personnel for their opinion on whether the current hearing is worth your
watching. I suggest that you plan to spend at least several hours to make this
observation worthwhile. It would also be a good idea to obtain a court calendar of cases
then currently being tried, on the day of your visit. I think that the
calendar for King County Superior Court can be obtained in the King County
Courthouse in the “Information” office. The calendar for
Snohomish County Superior Court is available on a monitor on the first floor,
or you may inquire at the Court Administrators office that is on the fifth
floor. You will need to check with the court clerk or the court administrator
for the calendar at any other court. It is best to find a case that
is either just beginning or about to end. That way, you can watch the
jury selection process (voir dire), and hear opening statements from the
attorneys and comments by the judge, if it is the beginning of the case, or
closing statements, if it is the end of a case. If it is a jury case, you might
hear the judge’s instructions to the jury. Otherwise, if you enter a
trial in the middle of the proceedings, you will in all likelihood be listening
to direct or cross-examination. Unless you know something about the case,
you will probably not get as much out of walking into a trial or hearing in the
middle of the proceeding. But if the judge takes a brief recess, most attorneys
do not mind being questioned about the nature of their cases, so you could
catch up that way.DO NOT CHEW GUM IN COURT, WEAR A
HAT, HAVE YOUR CELL PHONE ON (UNLESS ITS IN SILENT MODE), OR ELECTRONICALLY
RECORD (AUDIO or VIDEO) WHAT IS GOING ON – PLEASE DO NOT INTERRUPT THE
OPERATION OF THE COURT. COURTROOMS ARE GENERALLY
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, UNLESS THERE IS A SIGN POSTED ON THE DOOR THAT SAYS
SOMETHING LIKE CLOSED HEARING. ALSO, MANY COURTHOUSES HAVE METAL
DETECTORS, AND ANYTHING PERCEIVED AS BEING A WEAPON MAY BE CONFISCATED. IN THE SNOHOMISH COUNTY COURTHOUSE, IF YOU
HAVE A SWISS ARMY KNIFE OR OTHER WEAPON, ON YOUR PERSON OR KEY CHAIN, OR IN
YOUR PURSE, THE VERY THOROUGH GUARDS WILL LIKELY FIND IT, AND YOU WILL BE TOLD
TO CHECK IT IN THE LOCKERS MADE AVAILABLE FOR A FEE, BEFORE YOU WILL BE
ALLOWED TO ENTER THE COURTHOUSESO LEAVE THOSE THINGS BEHIND! AND PLEASE
DRESS NEATLY AND BE WELL-GROOMEDTHERE IS NO DRESS CODE (OTHER THAN NO HATS),
BUT YOU ARE REPRESENTING EDMONDS COMMUNITY COLLEGE, SO PLEASE, NO TORN JEANS,
FLIP-FLOPS, ETC. IF A LAW ENFORCEMENT
OFFICER ASKS YOU TO LEAVE THE COURTROOM, FOR WHATEVER REASON, PLEASE FOLLOW
THOSE INSTRUCTIONS RIGHT AWAY. PLEASE OBSERVE QUIETLY, PREFERABLY FROM A BACK
ROW IN THE COURTROOM.After your observation, you are to write a
paper in memorandum form (see format instructions below), which should include,
at a MINIMUM, the following information:1. The time, day, place (which court –
federal, superior, etc.) of the court proceeding.2. Name and type of case, the court case
number, and the names of the judge and attorneys involved. (You can often find
this out from the attorneys, during a break.)3. The nature of the legal proceedings
(jury or non-jury trial, motion calendar, etc.) taking place at the time, as
well as a description of the activities taking place, including what the
attorneys and/or the judge were doing or saying.4. Your own personal comments, impressions
or reaction to what you observed, including something new you learned about the
law or the legal system, or some impression that changed because of your visit.Some of you might have had a past court
proceeding experience that also qualifies, but you need to include the
information set out above. Various other state courts that qualify
for this assignment (besides the superior court) include the State Supreme
Court (Olympia) and the Court of Appeals (Seattle or Tacoma or Spokane). You
may also visit one of the federal courthouses in Western Washington (Seattle or
Tacoma) or Eastern Washington (Spokane, Richland or Yakima). You
may also visit another states court, or another federal court, but be sure
the court is at a jurisdictional level consistent with Washingtons superior
courts, or higher. (Check with me via Inbox if you have any concerns
about whether you are choosing the correct level of court to visit.) If you are
outside the United States for the entire quarter, and wish to visit a
courthouse elsewhere for this assignment, make sure that it is not the
equivalent of a state small claims court, where lawyers are not allowed.
You may send me a message in Inbox to confirm that the other court
qualifies for your memo.
Your report must be two full pages, double-spaced, and
must be in memorandum (memo) form. Please do not exceed two pages.
(This is memo form: At the top of the page, the following four items on
the left top side of the page, one item per line, so it looks like this (and
this one part of the memo needs to be single-spaced, not double-spaced): To: MSM [the instructors initials]From: (put your name in this space)Re: Visit to [put the name of the court visited
here, and the date of the visit]Date:___Do not include any other information at the top of the page (e.g.,
title of the course or headers), besides the four items shown above.The body of the memo must be in prose (the body of the
report must be in conventional paragraph form). Please do not number or
put headings on the paragraphs.
When you save and name your
document, please be sure to include your name in the document name, so I don’t
have to open the file to find out whose memo it is (e.g., if Sara visits King
County Superior Court in Seattle, she would name her document as follows: SaraHagenCrtVisitMemoSum16SecB).

Please save your document as Rich Text Format, so Ill be able to open
it. (If I cant, I wont be able to give you a grade.)
IF YOU CHOOSE OPTION 3 (THE COURT VISIT WITH ME OPTION):First, read
the previous section (Option 2) as well. (Make
sure you check out the courthouse complex campus and parking map below,
and bring a copy of this assignment with you, or have access to it when you
arrive.)Our visit is expected to occur on Tuesday, July 26th, at
approximately 8:15AM, at the Snohomish County courthouse complex, 3000 Rockefeller
Avenue, in Everett. To get to our meeting spot, enter the Courthouse Building (see map
link below) through the public entrance that faces Wall Street, and go
through Security there. Allow a little time to get through Security, because
there might be prospective jurors who receive priority (even though the court
administrators office has indicated that jurors are supposed to be using a
separate entrance). (We will be meeting at approximately 8:10 AM (Courthouse
Security opens at 8AM), on the second floor, in the hallway outside Departments
5 and 6–this is the hallway in the Mission Building across the second floor
pedestrian walkway, connecting the Mission Building to the Courthouse
Building–once you have walked beyond Security, and up the stairs to the second
floor (turn left at the top of the stairs and continue across the pedestrian
bridge).)] Court will likely not be in session yet, but please remain quiet
while waiting for me to arrive. If our meeting spot changes, I will post
any changes in Announcements, so be sure to check Announcements before you go.
For those who do the courthouse
visit with me, you will have some additional options as far as what to include
in your two-page memo, which are outlined below. We are scheduled to
visit with Judge Ellis, in Department 6 on the second floor (one of the
departments right by where we are meeting), at approximately 8:15AM, and maybe
have a tour behind-the-scenes of Judge Ellis chambers. (If you arrive at the
courthouse after 8:15, and we have
already left the hallway outside Departments 5 and 6, please go into
the courtroom designated Department 6, unless there is an indication that it
is a closed hearing, and quietly take a seat.)
Alternative report writing optionsIf you visit the courthouse with me, you may replace any of the
parts 1-3 of the court visit on your own option listed on pp. 3-4 with the
following:1. Describe what you learned about court clerk procedures,
if we visit the clerks office. OR2. Describe what you learned from the judge or other
courtroom personnel about the courtroom layout or any other topic discussed by
the judge. OR3. Describe what you observed in a courtroom before we met
with the judge.4. Explain what you most enjoyed about the trip.5. Explain what you least enjoyed about the tripwhen you do
this, please feel free to make a suggestion about how improvements could be
made in the trip, which I will take into consideration (although sometimes I
have no control over what you would like to see improved).Then make sure you include discussion of the topics listed in Item
4 of the court visit on your own assignment. (Any/all of the
first three topics referenced in the previous on your own court visit section
may also be used to fill your two-page report, but you need to include Item
4 of the on your own visit option (Your own personal comments,
impressions or reaction to what you observed, including something new you
learned about the law or the legal system, or some impression that changed
because of your visit.).) If you choose the Court Visit with Me option, then, when you are
ready to prepare your memo, follow the memo format and document naming/saving
instructions for the court visit on your own option, given on pp. 4-5, above.
This assignment is worth 50 points, allocated as follows:
1) Completion of interview or court visit (but you must complete and
post your memo to earn this): 25 points

the option you chose for this assignment: 15 points
