THE MOOT COURT BOARD APPRECIATES YOUR PATIENCE AS WE WORK THROUGH THE CURRENT SITUATION
Welcome to Moot Court!
Moot Court is an excellent way to develop your advocacy skills, have fun, and network with local attorneys. Through Moot Court, law students can put their oral advocacy skills to the test in a “simulated” trial or advocacy environment. Practitioners and sitting judges are often the judges and jurors for our competitions. In addition, our law students frequently work with junior high and high school students in their mock trial/moot court activities. Plus in their third year, law students can apply to be in the Order of Barristers, a national advocacy honor society.
Get involved by competing in any of our internal events, external competitions, or volunteering to participate as a timer or client!
