LAW416 Moot Court

Course Description

Moot Court provides students an opportunity to learn and develop appellate advocacy skills while representing the College of Law at a selected statewide or national moot court competition. Students are presented with the competition case problem and required to develop an appellate brief for one side of the case generally, but oral arguments for both sides of the case usually. Students choosing to fulfill their upper-division Appellate Advocacy requirement with Moot Court must participate in and complete the selected competition to receive credit for the course. These competitions may take place in the spring. No partial credit will be given for students who fail to participate in a competition.
