Weekend JD Sign Up - Trial Advocacy
All first year students are required to attend two advocacy events (one trial and one appellate) during the course of their 1L year in order to expose them to various aspects of the litigation process and prepare them for upper level courses.
First, each student must serve as a juror at one of the final trials of the upperclassmen in the Trial Practice courses.
Second, each student must observe one round of an appellate argument or serve as a bailiff at an approved moot court competition.
Weekend JD students have 2 years to complete these 1L Advocacy Requirements.
