The Moot Court Board is comprised of students who have demonstrated exceptional ability in appellate brief writing and oral advocacy. Day students compete for board membership during their second year and evening students compete during their third year of law school. The mission of the Board is to provide law students with an avenue to enhance their advocacy skills in appellate brief writing and oral debate. The Board accomplishes these goals by presenting a speaker series of federal and state appellate judges and practitioners, offering workshops on how to effectively write briefs and present oral arguments, assisting first and second-year students with their advocacy courses and competing in various competitions. The Moot Court program is, undoubtedly, one of the best ways for law students to develop oral advocacy and appellate writing skills.
