Applying to be a Moot Court Student Editor

Current 1Ls, 2Ls, and incoming transfer students are invited to apply for the position of Moot Court Student Editor for the 2022-2023 academic year.  Moot Court Student Editors can serve either for the full year (fall & spring) or for the spring semester only.  In the fall, the editors attend the Workshop in Briefcraft class, where they work collaboratively in teams of four to create new moot court problems.  In the spring, the editors serve as teaching fellows in the first-year legal writing program.  For more information about the two options (full year vs. semester) and the credit breakdown, please see the linked slides and information session recording below.
