Competitions & Wins
Advocacy Competitions in Dispute Resolution
The Frank Evans Center, in conjunction with the Advocacy Program, manages and administers a number of regional, national, and international law student competitions with the concentration and focus on representing clients in a variety of dispute resolution methods. Under the supervision and coaching of faculty and alumni, students have competed in numerous competitions, both at home and abroad. Due to their rigorous practice schedules, students receive academic credit for participation on traveling teams. To be eligible to compete, students must try out at the DR Intramural Tournament held annually in September.
Our teams have brought home 24 wins in recent years and an unprecedented number of appearances as finalists. The law school placed 3rd in the nation on the American Bar Association’s 2022-23 Competition Champions list. The last several years have been fantastic for the DR competition teams! Thank you to all who have helped South Texas Law teams have successful years.
