Article by Former Student: The Practicality of Practicums - Discovery Practicum

As a former student of Professor Thomson’s Discovery Practicum at the University of Denver, Beth Tomerlin discusses how the knowledge and experience she gained from the course led directly to her success in her first year out of law school. In reference to the course, Tomerlin writes, “I believe courses like the Discovery Practicum will drastically change how law students understand law and procedure and will actually provide them with the skills necessary to practice law. After the Discovery Practicum, I felt I understood the basics of litigation and that I was armed with the skills to effectively begin my career.”
