Advocacy Program

Part of graduating excellent lawyers with practice-related competencies is graduating outstanding advocates. In order to accomplish this task, UNT Dallas College of Law has developed a curriculum steeped in advocacy—from its required advocacy and experiential courses to the ten skills segments that are woven into all second and third-year doctrinal courses.  

 

These curricular requirements, however, are just the beginning. UNT Dallas College of Law offers a variety of extracurricular opportunities for its advocacy-hungry students to fine tune their skills, including:

  • UNT Dallas College of Law Intramural Competitions
    • The Annual First-Year Judge’s Gavel Motions Argument Competition
    • The Annual Thompson & Knight Intramural Moot Court Competition
  • UNT Dallas College of Law Intermural Moot Court Team
  • UNT Dallas College of Law Intermural Mock Trial Team
  • UNT Dallas College of Law & Texas A&M University School of Law Intermural ADR Competition
  • The UNT Dallas College of Law Board of Advocates

Although our program is in its early years, we have already built a reputation as a school that produces outstanding advocates. Top local prosecutors together with partners from top national and local law firms coach our intramural teams and train our emerging lawyers.
