Mission Statement

The Student Trial Lawyers Association aims to bring the exciting world of trial advocacy to DU Law students. STLA’s signature event is a fall mock trial program, and STLA hosts several speaker events during the year. The purpose of STLA is to create opportunities for students to develop trial advocacy skills in a non-competitive environment.

These opportunities benefit members and participants by:

  • Teaching them basic trial advocacy skills;
  • Reinforcing material learned in classes;
  • Honing their public speaking skills;
  • Exposing them to court documents and procedures; and
  • Providing networking opportunities with local attorneys and judges.

For more information, please refer to both the Events and Officers & Information links.
