Center for Trial and Appellate Advocacy

St. John’s Law mock trial program ranked #2 in the nation!

Advocacy is both an art and science.  Great advocates weave together the law of evidence and procedure with the traditional tools of persuasion.  At St. John’s Law, we have a long history of producing great trial and appellate advocates.  Founded in 2017, the Center for Trial and Appellate Advocacy highlights St. John’s Law’s commitment to producing the next generation of outstanding advocates.

The Center for Trial and Appellate Advocacy is home to students, faculty, alumni, and friends interested in advocacy of all forms: civil and criminal; trial and appellate; federal, state, and global.  Current students can take advantage of our innovative curriculum, participate in our nationally-ranked trial advocacy and appellate advocacy co-curriculum programs, and network with our faculty and alumni.  Alumni and friends can benefit from our forthcoming CLE and advanced training programs.
