UCLA Law School to Create Trial Advocacy Program with $1M Donation

The UCLA School of Law is creating a new trial advocacy program that will offer training to students interested in becoming trial advocates.
The A. Barry Cappello Program in Trial Advocacy comes from a $1 million donation from A. Barry Cappello, the Daily Bruin reports. Cappelo earned his law degree from UCLA in 1965 and is the managing partner of Cappello & Noël LLP, a law firm based in Santa Barbara.
The program will include course offerings and mandatory mock trial competitions and also offer scholarships for students interested in pursuing careers as trial attorneys.
“Trial skills are vital for students who want to hit the ground running when they graduate, and UCLA Law has the faculty and resources to offer one of the best programs in this area of law,” Cappello said. “I am delighted to provide funding that will fortify UCLA Law’s trial advocacy program. UCLA Law is where it all started for me, and I feel it is essential to give back in order to help others succeed.”
Upon completion of the program, students will receive the Cappello Certificate in Trial Advocacy at graduation, according to a press release by UCLA.
Cappello’s contribution will be part of the Centennial Campaign for UCLA, which aims to raise $4.2 billion for the university by the end of 2019.
