Credits

Student Year

2L/3L

Description:

The Civil Rights Moot Court focuses on current developments in civil rights law. Each year's topic is based on a case currently before the United States Supreme Court. Prior case topics have included redistricting and voting rights, affirmative action in public employment, and lethal injections in capital punishment cases. Students are able later to see how the Supreme Court decided the case they argued. Participants have an opportunity to develop extensive knowledge about an area of civil rights law, improve writing skills, and receive extensive training and practice in oral advocacy.

Sixteen 2Ls and five 3Ls (four student directors and one administrative director) make up the Civil Rights Moot Court. The 2L participants research and write their briefs in the first semester of the second year. Orals training occurs both semesters, and there is extensive focus on oral argument in the spring semester. All work usually is completed before spring break.

Four students are selected in the spring as student directors and competition team members for the following year. The Law School hosts the national competition in the spring, during which about eighteen teams from around the country compete. The directors compete in this three-day event, and the 2Ls host the event, which is a unique opportunity to observe top oralists from around the country. Course Credits: Second-year members earn two course credits. The directors receive four credits.
