Students thinking seriously about becoming a litigator/trial lawyer should consider the Litigation Specialization Certificate Program. The certificate is structured to provide the opportunity for a law student to become the best practice-ready litigator/trial lawyer that any law school education can produce.
This certificate program provides the opportunity to merge an extensive substantive education with hands-on experience in active simulation and live client litigation settings. Sequencing, breadth of substantive doctrinal courses, extensive experiential simulation, live client skills training and the capstone writing experience together facilitate students interested in a career in litigation to take full advantage of enormous resources made available to UM Law students.

Sequencing, breadth of substantive courses, extensive experiential simulation, live client skills training and the capstone writing experience together facilitate students interested in a career in litigation to take full advantage of enormous resources made available to Miami Law students.
Prospective participants are required to express their interest in the Litigation Specialization Certificate Program at a Mandatory meeting held in the 1L spring term. Final selection is made in August prior to commencement of fall 2L classes. Only students in the top 50% of their class at that time are eligible to participate. While grade point average will certainly be considered, it is not the sole criterion for selection.
