awards from advocacy competitions

Advocacy

The University of Georgia School of Law is home to a nationally recognized, award winning advocacy program.  This unparalleled learning experience prepares students for not only success in the courtroom but also in the boardroom or any setting that requires effective communication or negotiation skills.

 

Join a Winning Team

  • Our Moot Court and Mock Trial programs have won 10 national titles, 7 regional titles, and 2 state trophies in recent years.
  • All 2L and 3L students have the opportunity to participate in intramural moot court and mock trail competitions 
  • 1L students participate in the Richard B. Russell Moot Court Competition and are eligible to compete in the J. Ralph Beaird Closing Argument Competition

 

Develop Real World Skills

  • Participants enhance both written and spoken communication skills, preparing them for careers across all sectors of the law
  • Competitions provide unique opportunities to gain experience analyzing legal problems, formulating sound resolutions, and making effective arguments

 

Connect with the Legal Community

  • Competitions are held at the state, regional, national and international level, introducing participants to students and professors from law schools across the nation and the globe
  • Judges are typically federal jurists, leading attorneys, and other prominent members of the legal community 
  • Mock Trial and Moot Court programs are strongly supported by faculty members and alumni who assist with preparation and practice rounds
