At UCLA, the challenge isn’t finding classes that offer training in trial advocacy. The challenge is finding time to take them all. We offer Simulated Civil Trial Advocacy, Criminal Trial Advocacy, Jury Selection, Trial Practice, Advanced Trial Advocacy (in which students try cases based on transcripts and evidence from famous trials), and Advanced Topics in Trial Advocacy (which covers storytelling, courtroom technology, and public speaking, among other topics).
These courses are in addition to Appellate Advocacy, Pretrial Civil Litigation, Depositions and Discovery, Sentencing Advocacy, and multiple courses in Evidence. The law school also offers more than 50 clinical and experiential courses, several of which give students the opportunity to advocate in court.
