Each year the School of Law, through the David J. Beck Center for Legal Research, Writing, and Oral Advocacy, sponsors students with a proven commitment to oral and written advocacy as they participate in selected interscholastic moot court competitions. The competitions are held in simulated courtroom, arbitration, policy, and transactional settings across the country. The competitions require students to integrate theory, doctrine, strategy, and skills in intensive contests that build on the practical and analytical skills developed during the first-year legal research and writing course. These competitions function as dynamic laboratories in which students hone an array of skills needed to excel in law practice.
The Law School will send student advocates to the following interscholastic competitions this year:
The Law School also sponsors the Judge John R. Brown Admiralty Moot Court Competition.
The student run Board of Advocates also hosts two intramural competitions each year
For more information about the interscholastic competition teams and tryouts see the Tryouts page.
