Policies and Procedures

Below is a list of all the topics on which you can find information on policies and procedures. The Policies and Procedures page is in the process of being updated. For questions about information not contained below, contact the Dean of Students Office at lawdos@umn.edu.

Moot Court Programs

All second-year law students must satisfy the second-year writing requirement by successfully completing one of the seven Moot Court programs available: ABA Moot Court Competition Team, Civil Rights Moot Court, Environmental Law Moot Court, Intellectual Property Moot Court, International Moot Court, Maynard Pirsig Moot Court, or National Moot Court. Alternatively, students may complete the requirement by serving as a member of the staff on one of the five journals (Law Review, Minnesota Journal of International Law, Journal of Law and Inequality, The Labor Law Journal or the Minnesota Journal of Law, Science & Technology).

First-year law students apply for moot court positions during Spring semester. Acceptance into each moot court is based on the individual program requirements. Questions about the moot court programs can be directed to Professor Bradley G. Clary, Director of Applied Legal Instruction (625-1059, clary002@umn.edu) or Professor Christopher D. Soper, Assistant Director of Applied Legal Instruction (626-1605, csoper@umn.edu).

Ad Hoc Moot Courts

At this time, our moot court program is full. Therefore, requests for ad hoc moot courts are not being considered. If you have any questions, please contact Professor Clary’s office.
