2023 Student Trial Advocacy Competition
About 2023 STAC
Each year, AAJ hosts the Student Trial Advocacy Competition (STAC), showcasing top future trial lawyers. Regional tournaments are held across the country, and the two winning teams from each region then compete in the National Finals. The 2023 regional tournaments will be held virtually March 2-5. The National Finals will take place in person March 30-April 2 with the location to be announced. Additional information about STAC 2023 is available here.
As a reminder, student team members must be AAJ law student members by February 1, 2023 in order to register for and participate in STAC 2023. You can join AAJ online. Detailed instructions for now to register are available here.
If you are an AAJ member or other attorney and are interested in volunteering to judge during STAC 2023, details are available here.
