Campbell Law School advocacy programs are committed to fostering the development of complete advocates that demonstrate and command an exceptional understanding of the law, present evidence in a persuasive manner, and demonstrate the humanity and moral guidance to always do what is right.

Students that participate in Campbell Law advocacy programs get a practical and thorough education in the complete lawyer experience. Although strenuous and challenging, many students find our advocacy programs to be some of the most deeply rewarding and compelling parts of their legal education. By taking part in Campbell Law advocacy programs, future litigators learn what to expect upon entering the court for their first assignment, as well as how to present themselves as a seasoned and accomplished attorney from day one.

The advocacy and practice court experience is also beneficial to students that do not intend to litigate. Through participation in our advocacy programs, students learn to conduct client interviews, write contracts for court and arbitration, develop pragmatic and critical thinking skills, and confidently advocate for your client during negotiations.

Simply put, the skills learned and practiced through participation in Campbell Law advocacy programs are essential to any attorney, regardless of practice area.
