Advocacy Program

Syracuse Law is known nationwide for its advocacy skills training. A recipient of the American College of Trial Lawyers’ Emil Gumpert Award, our program has also been honored 10 times as the state’s best trial-skills law school by the New York State Bar Association. Our students have plenty of opportunities to hone their advocacy skills—not only in class, but also in our renowned moot court program.  In the past 16 years, Syracuse students have won 23 national and regional awards at a variety of national and international competitions.
