SUMMER TRIAL AND EVIDENCE PROGRAM (1st STEP)
After their first year in law school, students train as litigators through the Litigation Center’s nationally recognized Summer Trial and Evidence Program (1st STEP). Trial skills become second nature after students complete case study exercises, present in workshops, argue motions, and conduct full trials. By undergoing rigorous skills training tailored to hone courtroom technique, students receive an early advantage in today’s competitive job market.
