Through the Albany Law School Moot Court Program, more than 50 percent of the law school's students receive intensive practical training in oral and written appellate advocacy, trial advocacy, and client counseling and negotiation skills.
Participation in Moot Court prepares students who represent Albany Law School in the most prestigious regional, national and international appellate competitions. These competitions provide excellent experience in legal research, analysis, writing and oral advocacy. Additionally, they provide students with superb networking opportunities and also give students a great sense of accomplishment, teamwork and school spirit.
The Moot Court Board also organizes a series of intraschool competitions that allows Albany Law School students to compete against their classmates in the areas of appellate advocacy, trial practice, client counseling and negotiating skills. Most of the competitions require teams of two students and are modeled after the various national competitions where select teams from Albany Law School compete.
During the 2011-2012 year, Albany Law School competed in eight national competitions and hosted the 24th Annual Domenick L. Gabrielli Family Law Competition in February. Among the year's highlights:
