Oral Advocacy Requirement

The Oral Advocacy Requirement ensures that each student has had training and experience in making oral representations on behalf of a client in one of a range of settings. The requirement may be fulfilled in a variety of ways, including a basic moot court course where appellate advocacy skills are demonstrated and applied. Participation in moot court competitions with other law schools will also satisfy the oral advocacy requirement. Alternatively, intensive practical seminar courses in trial advocacy or interviewing, counseling and negotiation can satisfy this requirement. Student involvement in course work associated with the Community Legal Clinic is a further way to satisfy the oral advocacy requirement. In this context, students will have had specific responsibility for making representations, possibly including court appearances, in relation to designated client files.
