Experiential Learning

Trial Advocacy

The Charles Widger School of Law provides students with a wealth of opportunities for practical, hands-on learning that goes beyond traditional legal theory and principles taught in the classroom.

Students are encouraged to:

  • Represent clients from the local community in one of our six legal Clinics
  • Hone their litigation skills by participating in Moot Court, taking the Intensive or Advanced Trial Advocacy courses or competing on the National Trial Team
  • Go beyond the law school's walls and complete an Externship in a variety of legal settings from clerkships to small or large law firm employment

 

Wherever your interest lies, Villanova Law will prepare you to hit the ground running at graduation, providing you with not only legal knowledge but the skills and experience that employers are looking for in today's market.
