ABOUT THE LAWYERING SKILLS PROGRAM
GGU has a long history of focusing on practical training that not only improves students' understanding of legal concepts but also prepares them to be effective and ethical lawyers. By applying classroom knowledge to real world problems, students achieve a deeper understanding of, and proficiency in the practice of law.
Building on the strong foundation of the Honors Lawyering Program, GGU wants to ensure that all law students graduate with hands-on experience that includes both simulation courses as well as live client experiences. For example, we initiated the Summer Trial and Evidence Program (1st STEP), which integrates evidence, advocacy and presentation skills into a comprehensive program for students who have competed their first year.
With your help, we will continue to develop opportunities for student practice including greater student participation in moot court and mock trial competitions and a similar program to 1st STEP with a Business Law focus. In order to learn lawyering skills most effectively, students must rehearse. Along with program development, state of the art facilities -- skills practice rooms, training courtrooms, a signature Moot Courtroom -- will provide ideal learning environments, making Golden Gate University the law school of choice for students seeking to live and practice in the vibrant and beautiful San Francisco Bay Area.
It is imperative that we expand and strengthen these programs to keep GGU law students relevant in the legal community. With your help, these programs and spaces can become a reality and take GGU Law into the future.
