Team Composition

The team is coached by Professor Peter Danchin, and is essentially student run.  The International Moot Court Board also advises and assists with team preparation.  There are scheduled weekly meetings with Professor Danchin, and the team is also expected to meet at scheduled times to practice and discuss different issues concerning the competition problem.

The International Moot Court Board is made up remaining members of the previous year’s team.  Board members have the option to compete, or to perform in an advisory role.  Board members are responsible for the organizing tryout and recruiting efforts, organizing the team’s competition arrangements, budget management, and assisting in the overall advancement and improvement of the team.

The team itself is made up of up to five members.  Only four members are allowed to compete in any specific round; two for the respondent team and two for the applicant team.  The fifth member usually serves as an alternate and as “of-counsel,” providing key information to competing teams during competitions.  However, the team compositions are the decision of the team members.
