The School of Law  provides its students with ample opportunity to obtain and develop litigation skills.

To the end, students must successfully complete at least two credits in a course or credit activity in which the student assumes the role of a client representative. This requirement may be fulfilled by:

  • Participation in a clinic
  • Participation in an interscholastic advocacy team (e.g., Moot Court competition)
  • Completing any of the followingcourses: 

    • Advanced Trial Advocacy
    • Appellate Advocacy Workshop
    • Bench Trial Advocacy
    • Family Law Workshop
    • Litigation Process
    • Evidence Law Reform Seminar
    • Trial Advocacy

In addition, the following courses may satisfy either the workshop writing requirement OR the advocacy requirement (but not both):

  •  Appellate Advocacy Workshop

    * Appellate Practice Clinic 

    * Civil Advocacy Clinic I

    • Community Development Clinic I
    • Family Law Workshop
    • Family Law Clinic I
    • Family Mediation Clinic
    • Immigrant Rights Clinic I 

Note:  Students who complete Evidence Law Reform Seminar have the option of having that course satisfy either one scholarly upper-level writing requirement or the upper-level advocacy requirement (but not both of these requirements). Students who complete Civil Advocacy Clinic I and II (for 2 credits), Community Development Clinic I and II  (for 2 credits), Family Law Clinic I and II (for 2 credits), or Immigrant Rights Clinic I and II (for 2 credits) can receive credit for both the upper level advocacy requirement and one upper level workshop writing requirement.
