Advocacy Board

The Sherman Minton Advocacy Board is composed of third-year law students who are selected on the basis of their strengths in trial and appellate advocacy, and their leadership abilities. The Executive Board, along with the Competition Board, organizes and conducts the annual Sherman Minton Moot Court Competition, Indiana Law's school-wide appellate advocacy competiton, and the Trial Team. Members of the board also compete in national interscholastic trial and moot court competitions.

Members of the Advocacy Board would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to supporters in the legal community who volunteer their time and energy to make the Sherman Minton Moot Court and IU Trial Competitions possible. We look forward to the upcoming academic year, and wish every competitor the best of luck.
