Advocacy Program

The New York Law School Advocacy Program will offer students interested in litigation the opportunity to earn an Advocacy Certificate in Civil, Criminal, or Appellate Advocacy.

This program will offer students guidance about how to combine skills courses with writing and doctrinal courses to develop proficiency in an area of litigation.

Students interested in litigation can earn an Advocacy Certificate by taking a combination of procedure, writing, and skills courses. The Advocacy Program has three tracks: civil, criminal, and appellate. Each track culminates in a clinical, field placement, externship, or co-curricular experience in which students put the skills they’ve learned into practice.

Students interested in applying to the Advocacy Program can do find more information on the Academics section of the NYLS Portal.
