Event Description

The LSU Law Center’s Advocacy Programs will hold a general interest meeting for all second- and third-year students to outline the many opportunities available in the 2019-2020 academic year.

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 advocacy 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 Transactional Competition, and the Dean’s Cup), more than 25 different traveling advocacy competition teams, the Board of Advocates, and a number of other skills development programs.

Prof. Jeffrey Brooks, the Preis PLC Director of Advocacy and Professional Practice, Advocacy Fellow Annie Scardulla, and representatives of the Board of Advocates will be present at the meeting to explain the various program offerings, describe how students can sign up to participate in the many Advocacy Programs events scheduled for the fall semester, discuss the tryout processes for traveling competition teams, and otherwise answer questions.  Students can also visit the Advocacy Programs website, law.lsu.edu/advocacy, for information on this semester’s offerings, competition case files, and a calendar of upcoming events.

Questions about the interest meeting should be directed to Prof. Brooks at jeffbrooks@lsu.edu.
