Campus courtrooms

Our on-campus courtrooms offer the opportunity for realistic simulations, preparing you for real-world, professional law practice. 

Students in trial practice courses use the courtrooms to:

  • become familiar with courtroom procedure and decorum
  • practice courtroom skills in a completely professional setting
