For more than seventy years, the Barristers' Council has been providing students at Georgetown University Law Center with opportunities to hone their advocacy skills. Students who are interested in joining the Council do so through the Appellate Advocacy, Trial Advocacy, and ADR Advocacy divisions, which sponsor a number of intrascholastic competitions every year. Students chosen to join Barristers' Council begin intensive training to represent Georgetown Law at national and international advocacy competitions.
Georgetown Law is ranked 4th in Appellate Advocacy by the University of Houston Blakely Advocacy Institute and 5th in Trial Advocacy by US News and World Report.
