Past Competitions

 

The Moot Court team is made up of students who participate in regional, national, and international competitions. Team members write briefs and often have the opportunity to argue their cases in front of prominent jurists, including Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. Becoming a member of the Moot Court team is a great way to improve oral advocacy and writing skills and to meet other law students throughout the country.

Competing in the Spring Qualifying Tournament is how most students become members of the Moot Court team. Once on the team, students are assigned to a specific regional, national, or international competition. Team members are required to take Appellate Advocacy, a 3-credit course designed to teach effective brief writing and oral advocacy.
