Board of Advocates

The Law Center’s Advocacy Programs are administered in large part by the Board of Advocates, the Law Center’s student honor organization dedicated to the promotion and development of oral and written persuasive advocacy skills.  Rising third-year law students are selected to membership on the Board of Advocates based on a holistic application that looks at a student’s success in the Law Center’s many different internal and external advocacy opportunities. The Board of Advocates is the result of a merger of the Moot Court Board and the Trial Advocacy Board. The Board of Advocates’ office can be found in Room 306 at the LSU Law Center.

Membership on the Board of Advocates is an academic honor awarded to students who demonstrate excellence in the art of advocacy.

To contact the Board of Advocates, send an email to or visit Room 306.
