The Stephen S. Weinstein
Advocacy Program

The Stephen S. Weinstein Advocacy Program trains students in all forms of legal advocacy, including trial and appellate litigation, alternative dispute resolution, and transactional negotiations. The Advocacy Program is currently ranked 4th nationally by U.S. News and World Report and has been one of the ten best advocacy programs since 2012. 

Success of the program is due, in large part, to the more than 100 legal professionals who teach, coach, and volunteer to support our mission. Area practitioners and judges impart their vast expertise as they teach a wide range of advocacy courses and skilled lawyers have coached student teams to more than 25 national championships over the last 8 years.
