Drake students considering law school are encouraged to take advantage of several learning opportunities offered by the Drake Law School:
- The Constitutional Law Center, one of four such centers in the nation to be endowed by Congress, is a valuable resource for students, scholars and legal professionals. Drake’s center sponsors an annual national symposium that explores constitutional issues, community law forums and the Constitutional Law Speaker Series.
- Intercollegiate Mock Trial teaches undergraduate students about the legal process as they develop important critical thinking and public speaking skills. A student-led team in 2011 advanced to the final round of the American Mock Trial Association national championships, which were held at Drake Law School. The Law School hosts the annual National Intercollegiate Mock Trial Tournament, which attracts teams from more than 100 colleges and universities.
- Drake Law School’s National Moot Court Team has a long record of success and often advances to the final rounds of the National Moot Court Competition in New York City.
