Moot Court Committee

The Moot Court Committee advises the Moot Court Executive Board and Board of Advocates concerning both member selection and internal and external competitions, communicates with the faculty concerning matters of interest or concern, awards academic credit for moot court service, and recommends and develops initiatives that will strengthen the Moot Court program. To the extent necessary, the Committee will work with others to develop the problems for internal competitions.

For 2020-21, the Committee will oversee the Keenan Moot Court Competition including grading and obtaining other faculty to grade the briefs submitted and organizing the oral competition, as well as overseeing the drafting of the problem for the next school year and the Committee will assist the E-Board in preparing teams for national competitions.
