This is a three-round elimination competition in appellate advocacy. The first round occurs in the fall term. In this round, each student briefs one issue of a two-issue case and argues both sides of that issue in two oral arguments before benches composed of lawyers and judges.
Some number of competitors advance to the spring semi-final round on the basis of brief and oral scores received from the fall benches. The top-scoring four students from the spring semi-final round argue in the final round before a bench of distinguished judges and a large audience. No new brief is required. Finalists may be assigned by the director to either side of either issue. A prize is awarded for the best oral argument in the Final Round as determined by the judges.
Minor writing credit available for upperclass students upon submission of completed brief to the Faculty Director of the Moot Court Program for review.
