Become an advocate.
Advocacy teams and competitions accustom you to the etiquette and environment of a courtroom while sharpening the skills you need to build a convincing argument. The UB School of Law offers two types of advocacy activities: Moot court teams and trial teams.
Trial teams conduct full trials in a competitive atmosphere. Students who participate in these teams learn how to present a case to a jury using persuasive trial tactics. UB sponsors teams in four trial competitions:
- American Association for Justice Student Trial Advocacy Competition
- American Bar Association Section of Labor and Employment Law Employment Litigation Student Trial Advocacy Competition
- National Black Law Students Association Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial Competition
- National Trial Competition.
