External Competitions


The Berkeley Law Board of Advocates offers one of the best comprehensive competitive advocacy programs of any top ten law school.  The Board sends students to well over a dozen outside competitions every year, and commits significant time and resources to training these students.  Many alumni remember their time with the Board fondly after they have departed Berkeley Law, and the Board is proud of its relationships with top local appellate advocates, trial attorneys, negotiators, and mediators who volunteer their valuable time to help our students excel. 

Please see the tabs at right for more information about our four categories of external competitions:  ADR/Negotiations, Trial Advocacy, Appellate Advocacy, and International Competitions. International competitions are open through the Advocacy Competitions Program to all Berkeley Law J.D. and LL.M. students. Other external competitions for ADR Team, Moot Court Team, and Trial Team are limited to J.D. participation.
