Master of Laws in Advocacy
(Advocacy LL.M. Program)

The LL.M. in Advocacy is designed for recent law school graduates, lawyers looking to diversify their practice or make a career change, and more experienced litigators who seek to expand their competencies and hone litigation skills. The Advocacy LL.M. equips students with solid advocacy skills through rigorous academic offerings and a breadth of practical litigation training.

The Advocacy Program has responded to the increased importance of lawyers with practical skills by creating new courses to prepare students for litigation in the 21st century, including an emphasis on the use of modern technology in the courtroom. Participants graduate ready to excel in the courtroom or before administrative law judges, arbitration panels, or other tribunals.
