On October 4, 5 and 6, the Center for Advocacy at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law will host its annual national invitational tournament, The Summit Cup.   The top U.S. law school trial advocacy teams are invited to compete in the annual event after earning their invitation by winning a major U.S. tournament last year.  

This year’s honored schools are: Northwestern (reigning champions), American, Campbell, Cumberland, Drexel, Florida State, Georgia State, Loyola-Chicago, Maryland, St. Mary’s and UC Hastings.

TRIAL BOOM! …the creators of the national, CLE-approved courtroom simulator, is the official sponsor of this year’s Summit Cup.  The Trial Boom courtroom simulator has been described by many as “a flight simulator for attorneys and law school students to help sharpen their courtroom navigation skills and use of the rules of evidence.”  For more information visit:

The year’s courtroom events will take place at the beautiful Jefferson County District Court in Golden, Colorado (“Where The West Lives”).  The case the law school advocates will be arguing is a civil wrongful death claim based upon the murder of Laci Peterson.
