Participating in a Moot Court competition will be an exciting and memorable highlight of your law school experience. The process is different for internal and external competitions. Here’s how to participate:
Moot Court holds an informational meeting a few weeks before each competition. These meetings can be found on our calendar, on our Facebook page, and in the Daily Disclosure student announcements. If you missed a meeting, e-mail one of the Moot Court Board members for information. Regardless of their attendance at the informational meeting, students can sign up either online or on the signup sheets posted in the school. Each competition has a deadline for signups, after which the competitor list is frozen.
After the signup deadline has passed, Moot Court will e-mail all registered competitors with links to the competition materials, their time slot assignment, and other relevant information.
For external competitions, law students must form their own competition teams. Teams must submit the External Competition Application Form for Moot Court Board approval prior to registering for any external competition, and can contact the external competition coordinator, Nicole Fries at firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information on this process.
Academic credit may be available for external teams; the requirements are listed in the External Competition Student Policy.
There are many mechanisms for teams to obtain funding for external competitions, including GPSA. More information on the funding process is available by e-mailing Nicole Fries, external competition coordinator.
