Description:

Each year, the Law School's National Moot Court team competes with approximately 150 law schools in the National Moot Court Competition. The competition, sponsored by the American College of Trial Lawyers and the Young Lawyers Committee of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, focuses on developing the art of appellate advocacy. The topics selected are current matters of national interest, such as the constitutionality of sex-offender notification laws.

Twenty-four students participate in the second-year program, which focuses on writing in the fall semester and oral advocacy in the spring. First drafts of the brief are due in November. After careful critique by the directors, participants rewrite their briefs, which are submitted in January. Orals training by directors and orals coaches occurs in February and March. The program generally ends by spring break. The competition team is a group of 3Ls selected from the second-year program. Team members research and write two briefs, and prepare oral arguments. They compete at the regional competition, and, if successful as they have been in roughly half of the past dozen years they go on to nationals in New York City. Course Credits: Second-year members receive two credits. Third-year directors receive four credits; the administrative director receives two.
