Effective advocacy requires a robust knowledge of the law, but even the sharpest legal minds need to be able to successfully advocate their clients’ positions. To prepare Penn State Law students to be compelling advocates and litigators, they learn basic legal communication skills in their first year—and put them into practice in the 1L Mock Trial Competition—then have the opportunity to continue with upper-level coursework, advocacy in law clinics, and Moot Court and Mock Trial Competitions.
