#FastTrackFriday Workshops

On Friday afternoons throughout much of the fall semester, the Advocacy Programs faculty will host a series of “fast-track” intensive skills workshops designed to give students exposure to skills necessary for success in internal and external competitions being held at the LSU Law Center in that semester. The #FastTrackFriday workshops are open to all LSU Law Center students, but are particularly intended for 2L and 3L students who plan to participate in Advocacy Programs competitions. Students can freely attend any or all of the workshops. No registration is necessary. No preparation is necessary. Simply show up!
