About Competing

Practice important oral advocacy skills by giving an appellate oral argument as petitioner or respondent. Receive valuable feedback from practicing attorneys on how to improve as future counsel. Competitors: You will give a 10-minute oral argument for a fictitious case. Petitioners can reserve time for rebuttal at the end (1-2 mins recommended).

1Ls: This is a great competition because you can practice for your final graded oral argument in Legal Advocacy!

About Volunteering

Volunteering to be a timer for this competition is a great way to observe others compete and hear the feedback they provide to competitors. You can see what competing in a Moot Court Competition is like with no risk! However, if you sign up to volunteer on a specific date, you are committing to the entire evening: 5:00pm-9pm. We will provide you with dinner, a short break, and our endless gratitude.

Competition Max Limits: (First-Come, First-Served) The sign up will close when we have hit the max of 7 timers. This is strictly first-come, first-served. No preference will be given to any year.

If you volunteer, you cannot compete as well. You must choose to either volunteer OR compete.
