The Kenneth W. Street Advocacy Courtroom was dedicated during Homecoming 2015, honoring the longtime faculty member whose name has long been synonymous with law and public service preparation at Austin College. Gifts from alumni and friends created the named facility to support the Advocacy Teams.
The Mock Trial program helps law students succeed in law school and in their careers by teaching the fundamentals of the rules of evidence, civil and criminal procedure, and litigation strategy and techniques. It helps all students involved, no matter what their career aspirations may be, by teaching rigorous analysis and public speaking.
