Extracurricular Experiences

To provide students with a strong experience base in research, writing, and advocacy skills, Penn State Law offers a range of extracurricular opportunities.

Our faculty is augmented by judges, attorneys, and other litigation experts who volunteer their time to mentor and coach students in appellate moot court and national trial competitions. Completed in 2010, the $150 million investment in new and renovated facilities created a cutting-edge courtroom experience for students who participate in trial advocacy course work and moot court competition. Penn State Law courtrooms feature state-of-the-art video technology and digital evidence presentation equipment and have hosted actual circuit court arguments.

Students staff three journals published by the Law School. The Penn State Law Review is one of the oldest student-edited scholarly publications in the nation. Students interested in furthering their involvement in the areas of international law, and arbitration and mediation can compete for positions on these journals.
