Chapman University School of Law - Orange, CA

Graduate Program Subject: Trial Advocacy

Degree Offered: LL.M.

Program Description: Chapman’s newest LL.M. program is different than most Trial Advocacy programs that you may find because it lets qualified candidates gain nearly unattainable civil or criminal trial experience while in school. Unlike other programs, Chapman’s LL.M. in Trial Advocacy gives students who are licensed by the California State Bar the opportunity to participate in a 15-week “residency” in a criminal agency or law firm, where they will routinely make court appearances and handle other pretrial matters. Most will also try at least one complete jury trial. Candidates not licensed by the California State Bar will still be able to receive hands-on trial training from Superior Court Judge’s and leading jurists, prosecutors, civil litigators, and criminal defense attorneys.

Duration Full time: 1 year

Duration Part time: n/a

Application Deadline: Rolling admissions (Fall: April 15)
