Trial Advocacy - Apply for Membership

Duquesne University School of Law offers a nationally recognized trial advocacy program that seeks to prepare students to be courtroom-ready advocates.  Through comprehensive coursework and competition experience, the program develops students’ skills in case analysis, trial preparation, effective communication, witness preparation, and case presentation.  Peter. D. Giglione directs the Trial Advocacy Program.  A graduate of Duquesne Law, Giglione is a firm partner with extensive trial experience.

Each year, the students participate in regional and national competitions across the country.  With more than 15 years of program excellence, the list of trial advocacy wins is extensive. 

Students interested in participating in trial advocacy programs must audition for the trial advocacy class, an intensive five (5) credit course.  Students are selected and appointed to the trial teams based on their performance in the course.
