Are you a 2L or 3L who wants to learn more about opening statements, expert witnesses, or Moot Court tryouts? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then mark your calendars for the fall 2015 Advocacy Skills Lunch Workshops. Designed to give 2L and 3L students exposure to a number of different courtroom skills, these workshops will complement participation in the many internal competitions offered at LSU Law, and also to assist students in developing skills that may be assessed in the Advocacy Programs’ moot court and trial advocacy team tryouts.
