Mercer Advocacy Council

Mercer’s School of Law has developed an oral advocacy program that is both nationally ranked and well-respected. Comprised of second- and third-year students, the Mercer Advocacy Council sponsors teams that compete in numerous national competitions each year and organizes intra-school competitions for first- and second-year law students. Students compete in various forms of oral and written advocacy, including Moot Court, Mock Trial, Client Counseling, and Negotiation.
