» LL.M. in Trial Advocacy with Court Residency

LL.M. in Trial Advocacy with Court Residency is different than most trial advocacy programs because it lets qualified candidates gain nearly unattainable real-world 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 Judges and leading jurists, prosecutors, civil litigators and criminal defense attorneys.

Please note that the LL.M. in Trial Advocacy program only accepts applications for fall admission.
