Blackstone Advocacy

Blackstone Advocacy gives law and pre-law students the opportunity to develop legal advocacy, persuasion and research skills without the pressure of competition. At our weekly sessions you will receive training, support and feedback as you take part in mock trials, negotiations, and client interviews.

With a social barbecue after each session, this is the best way to meet new friends and improve as a law student. Blackstone Advocacy is open to all law students regardless of mooting experience.
