The Academy seeks to develop graduates who possess a solid grasp of the fundamentals of American jurisprudence. Each student is expected to ably analyze questions within a legal framework, and to convey that analysis in a written from that is cogent and thorough.
Moreover, it is my intention for each student graduating from the Academy to not just know “book law,” but to excel in the presentation of an argument, written or oral. The Academy will foster each graduate’s understanding of the principles of advocacy, starting from the elements identified by Aristotle: ethos, pathos, logos.
