Opportunities for advocacy competition are integrated into the advocacy curriculum. The following courses feature trial and appellate advocacy competition for course credit:
Students may register for International Moot Court and receive credit for an intramural brief and other course related activities. Select students from the court are chosen to represent the School of Law at the Jessup International Moot Court Competition.
In the spring, eligible students have the opportunity to try out for the Trial Team. Students who are chosen are expected to commit four semesters to the program. As Trial Team members, students have the opportunity to represent the School of Law in outside competitions.
Eligible students may participate in Moot Court in either or both the fall and spring semesters. The best advocates are invited to join the Moot Court Board. Students selected to the Board after the fall competition are required to participate in the spring Morris B. Myerowitz Moot Court Competition. The Moot Court Board selects from among the students participating in the Myerowitz Competition the school’s three-member National Moot Court Team that represents the school the following year in a national competition.
