Jenckles is a great way to develop your public speaking and critical evaluation skills. Additionally, you’ll also get feedback from judges, who are experiencing practicing local attorneys. If that’s not enough to entice you, those that do well can win money, awards, and a chance to represent Arizona State University against the University of Arizona for the coveted Jenckes Cup!
You and a teammate (you can register with a partner, or let the Moot Board match you up with another individual) will give a 15-minute closing argument based on a closed case file. No additional research is required.
More info and tips are available on our Internal Competitions page.
