Criminal Law and Advocacy at Quinnipiac University solves from corruption to litigating terrorism and mob cases, the practice of criminal law and advocacy is one of the most fascinating and diverse areas of the legal system.


At Criminal Law and Advocacy at Quinnipiac University key principles have been engrained in our society since the framers of the U.S. Constitution made access to criminal defense a fundamental right. This concentration gives you a firm grounding in the theory and procedure of criminal law and explores the nuances of criminal activity, including white-collar financial crimes, human trafficking and cybercrime. 

Learning outcomes

You’ll develop cutting-edge trial skills, such as the innovative use of visual persuasion techniques in the courtroom, and you’ll examine ethical issues unique to criminal practice settings. You’ll also develop and refine your ability to engage in both prosecution and defense work at the trial and appellate levels by advocating for real clients in our law clinics. 

Your negotiation and litigation skills are honed through mock trials and courtroom simulations, and every year we host the Northeast Regional Criminal Justice Trial Advocacy Competition. Plus, our externship program offers you the opportunity to shadow prosecutors, defense attorneys or judges to experience the system in action. And our active Criminal Law Society sponsors several networking events and activities focused on helping you connect with legal professionals.
