The mission of the Charleston School of Law Trial Advocacy Board (TAB) is to prepare students to become ethical, experienced, and zealous lawyer-advocates.

Mission: The mission of the Charleston School of Law Trial Advocacy Board (TAB) is to prepare students to become ethical, experienced, and zealous lawyer-advocates. Participation is founded upon a student's commitment to the pursuit of excellence in advocacy and to ethically represent the Charleston School of Law through dedication and compliance with each team's rigorous and demanding practice schedule. Membership in TAB is a prestigious and highly coveted distinction that provides real-world training in trial skills. We compete throughout the United States – including Chicago, Charlotte, Memphis, Tuscaloosa, and Tampa – in “Invitational” Competitions, where even obtaining an invitation to compete is an honor. Students who possess a drive for excellence and who wish to advance their written and oral advocacy skills beyond the walls of a classroom are strongly encouraged to seek membership on the Board. TAB accepts new members during its annual internal competition. The trials are judged, critiqued, and scored by TAB directors, practicing attorneys, and judges. To be eligible, you must have completed your first year of law school (full or part-time), be in good academic standing, and be willing to commit the time, energy, and dedication needed to become a member of a championship team. Once selected for the Board, you will be given the opportunity to compete in interscholastic trial competitions against other law schools from across the United States. TAB teams compete year-round, and some competitions require preparation and practice during summer and winter breaks. However, not every student on the Board will compete every semester. Instead, TAB directors, coaches, and the Executive Board will individually select teams of usually 3 or 4 students for each competition. Occasionally, students will compete on a team comprised of members of other advocacy boards, including moot court. Membership on these teams is highly selective and will be based on the level of skill you exhibit during the internal TAB competition, your academic achievements, and your overall commitment to the Board. The external competitions require students to demonstrate their advocacy skills in both civil and criminal trials. Students will participate in simulated jury trials and will be judged by experienced trial advocacy professors, trial lawyers, and judges from across the United States. Trial competitions require extensive knowledge and skill in pretrial motions, opening and closing arguments, witness examinations, and the rules of Evidence. Membership on the Board is an exclusive privilege. If selected after trying out, you will be asked to devote a substantial amount of time and commitment to the Board; however, you will gain invaluable experience in the art of advocacy that will serve you far into the future. The School of Law's Trial Advocacy Board is a family within the law school, as any current member will tell you, and we look forward to inviting new members every year. If you have the desire to graduate with a skill unique to very few students – and, practicing lawyers – and if you want to travel nationwide and compete against the best and for the best, then the Trial Advocacy Board is an opportunity you should consider!
