Course Description

Students admitted to Moot Court develop and refine their skills in appellate brief writing and oral advocacy. They work on collaboration, team-building, and peer-review skills. They use critique and feedback to hone their skills. They write and revise an appellate brief, which may satisfy their upper-level writing requirement. They participate in multiple rounds of simulated appellate oral arguments and receive feedback and coaching. The course culminates in an intramural moot court competition. Teams for external moot court competitions are chosen from the class. As representatives of the Law School, external teams engage in regional and national brief-writing and oral-advocacy competitions against students of other law schools.
