Presentation before a moot court.

Engaged Learning

Come to USF and learn how to succeed not in law school but in law itself. Through classes, externships, clinics, and other programs, you acquire the knowledge and skills that employers crave — and that you can put into practice on day one.

USF's Moot Court Program helps you build the advocacy and leadership skills required of today's legal professionals.

Become a well-trained researcher, thinker, writer, and advocate.

Step out of the classroom and into the courtroom to work on a range of legal matters, from civil, to criminal, to juvenile law cases, and more.

A two-week intensive course open to all U.S. law students, focusing on litigation and trial techniques and strategies.

Earn academic credit for fieldwork at government agencies, corporate legal departments, law firms, nonprofit organizations, and state and federal courts.

Work towards the interim reform, and ultimate abolition, of the death penalty in the United States.

Our student-run academic journals provide opportunities for students to improve their writing and analytical skills in their area of interest.

I learned the ability to think clearly, argue coherently, write well, and work in a competitive environment. All the things lawyers do all the time are relevant in my work now.”
