Veith Volunteers as Trial Advocacy Lecturer at Tulane University Law School, Her Alma Mater

For the Fall 2022 semester, Fishman Haygood litigator Rebekka Veith served as a Trial Advocacy: General Litigation lecturer at Tulane University Law School. In this weekly practical skills course, students “learn by doing,” a method through which they role play simulated trial problems. Subjects include opening statements, direct and cross examination, witness impeachment and rehabilitation, and much more.

Faculty members are made up of experienced trial lawyers and judges who give demonstration performances. Professionals rotate through each section, which helps expose students to a variety of views and ideas. Upon the course’s conclusion, students try a jury trial.

On this Giving Tuesday, a day which inspires global generosity, we are reminded of how important it is to give back of your time, your talent, or your treasure.

“Though I was the one preparing for a weekly class, and critiquing and reviewing performances, I feel like I received much more in return from these outstanding students,” says Veith. “It was exciting to watch them grow throughout the course, and I cannot wait to see what they do in our community and beyond.”
