The Geoffrey Fieger Trial Practice Institute provides second and third-year law students with a two-year intensive and focused curriculum designed to teach the fundamental concepts of litigation, develop and enhance trial skills, and practice professional decorum.
This comprehensive program is taught by experienced trial lawyers from both criminal and civil practice. Admission, limited to 64 students each year, is highly competitive. Applications are accepted in the spring semester from first-year law students in good academic standing. Each applicant's resume, statement of purpose, writing sample, academic accomplishments, communication and articulation skills as well as presentation are assessed to determine whether the applicant will have the requisite capabilities to be a competent and effective trial lawyer. Successful applicants gain admission to the 20-credit hour certification program for their second and third years at the Law College.
