Students who are in a J.D. or Advanced Standing Two-Year J.D. program may participate in trial competitions, moot court competitions and mock trials, which help our students refine their research, writing and oral advocacy skills with the help of faculty, attorneys and judges. In simulations of appellate arguments and trials, students learn to argue either side of a case – invaluable especially for those considering a career in litigation.
Trial advocacy is the branch of knowledge concerned with making attorneys and other advocates more effective in trial proceedings.
