The School offers a rich program of lawyering skills competitions to the curricula. Both first-year and upper-class students are encouraged to refine their lawyering techniques through our various lawyer advocacy competitions.  Some of the competitions earn academic credit, and all of the competitions provide excellent training in valuable lawyering skills and professional values.  The trial and appellate skills competitions are administered by the Trial and Advocacy Program, and client counseling, negotiation, mediation, and other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) competitions are administered by the ADR Program.  For more information about the Competitions administered by the Trial and Advocacy Program, click on your area of interest.
