Student Trial Advocacy Program

The Student Trial Advocacy Program was founded in 1985 to train law students in trial courtroom advocacy.

In a simulated courtroom setting, a student and a partner present one civil and one criminal trial over the course of the fall and winter semesters. This student-run program is open to upper-class students. Wayne Law’s Student Trial Advocacy Program students are known for performing well in both regional and national competitions.
