Advocacy Center Annual Golf Tournament

 

August 2019

 

Dear Advocacy Center Supporter, 

The Loyola University New Orleans College of Law is excited to announce its 1st Annual Advocacy Center Golf Tournament scheduled on Friday, October 25, 2019, at Audubon Golf Club. 

The Advocacy Center promotes and supports the growth of written and oral advocacy through five distinct programs: The Danny and Mary Becnel Trial Advocacy Program, Moot Court, International Advocacy, Alternative Dispute Resolution, and Legal Research and Writing. Each program is student-run, with boards that collaborate to fund teams to compete in advanced simulated mock trial, appellate, and ADR competitions, all against other law schools throughout the country and internationally. These competitions foment high levels of persuasive oral advocacy, effective brief writing, and compelling negotiating. Loyola’s competition teams consistently earn top marks and recognition at competitions across the country and the world. We continue to further Loyola’s reputation for producing exceptional legal advocates. 

To ensure the future success of these programs, we invite you to make a tax- deductible donation through sponsorship of, and/or participation in, our 1st Annual Advocacy Center Golf Tournament. With the creation of the Advocacy Center, this golf tournament takes the place of the longstanding Moot Court Golf Tournament as Moot Court is now part of the larger Center. This event serves as our principal fundraiser for the academic year and involves a network of lawyers, judges, and business professionals throughout New Orleans and surrounding areas. As a sponsor, your business will receive recognition on the official Advocacy Center website, Advocacy Center social media pages, and at the Golf Tournament. 

This year, we are offering a 3-hour CLE program at the College of Law from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. before the tournament.  More details about the CLE will be forthcoming. You can earn a few hours of CLE in the morning and end the day with a round of golf and camaraderie among friends!

Thank you for your support of the Loyola Advocacy Center. Through your generous gifts, our programs will be ready for another year of success!
