California Western is well known in San Diego and across the nation for the success of its competition teams. The Competitive Advocacy Program (CAP) gives students the opportunity to learn courtroom and professional skills that many practicing attorneys have not been able to master yet. We develop fierce competitors and profession-ready advocates who go on to become successful in their careers because of the foundation they have been given in the Program.

Students accepted to The Competitive Advocacy Program have access to an elite and intense bootcamp class. Our students are taught and coached by seasoned local attorneys and judges who are in courtrooms every day and have a wealth of real-life experience.

Alumni who were members of The Competitive Advocacy Program consistently say it was one of the most valuable things they did while in law school.

Join our program and start your journey into the exciting world of advocacy!
