The Law Center’s Advocacy Programs will hold a general informational meeting for all interested students on April 22, 2014 during the 12:40 lunch hour. This meeting is targeted primarily at rising second-year students, but all students are welcome to attend – lunch will be provided.
The Law Center’s award-winning Advocacy Programs encompass a number of different appellate advocacy (“moot court”), trial advocacy, and alternative dispute resolution programs, and collectively provide students with a number of different extracurricular opportunities to develop their courtroom skills. Program offerings include the Law Center’s six different internal advocacy competitions (the Opening Statement Competition, the Robert Lee Tullis Moot Court Competition, the Ira S. Flory Mock Trial Competitions, the Arbitration Competition, and the Chancellor’s Cup Senior Appellate Challenge), over thirty different traveling advocacy competition teams, the Moot Court and Trial Advocacy Boards, and a number of other skills development programs.
Professor Jeffrey Brooks, the Preis & Roy Director of Advocacy and Professional Practice, and representatives of the Moot Court and Trial Advocacy Boards will be present at the meeting to explain the various program offerings, describe how students can sign up to participate in these events, and otherwise answer questions. Students can also visit the Boards’ websites for additional information (mootcourt.law.lsu.edu and trialadvocacy.law.lsu.edu), and can “like” the Boards’ Facebook pages (facebook.com/LSULawTrialAdvocacyBoard and facebook.com/LSULawMootCourtBoard) to receive updates on various Advocacy Programs events.
Questions about the interest meeting should be directed to Prof. Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org.
