Moot Court


Learn to read, think, write, and argue like a lawyer. The department has established a moot court team to compete in undergraduate events held by the American Moot Court Association.  Moot court is a mock appellate argument of the type held before the Supreme Court of the United States and the federal and state courts of appeals.  Students write a brief and prepare an oral argument on a topic in U.S. constitutional law.   If you want to practice your oral advocacy and legal writing skills, this is one of the best ways available, and almost every law school has a moot court.
