Intellectual Property Moot Court

LEC

Credits

cr.

Student Year

2L/3L

Description:

The Intellectual Property Moot Court furthers students' research, writing, and oral advocacy skills using case problems based primarily on patent, copyright, and trademark issues. Case problems also may involve computer law and antitrust issues.

The sixteen 2Ls do a warm-up assignment in September and October based on one of these areas of law. Students then present oral argument on the first assignment. This is followed by the first draft of an appellate brief, due toward the end of the fall semester. After critique by the directors, students rewrite the briefs. Students will do extensive oral argument work, based on the problem addressed in the briefs, during spring semester. Final oral arguments are presented in courtrooms to attorneys practicing in intellectual property law. The program generally is over before spring break.

The program is run by two 3L student directors and two practicing attorney directors. Directors are selected based on their overall performance during their second year. The two student directors also are the competition team for the Giles S. Rich Moot Court competition. They write the team brief, and attend the regional competition, usually in the third week of March. The top two teams at the regional competitions qualify for nationals in Washington, D.C., usually held the first week in April. Course credit: Second-year students receive two credits. Student directors receive two credits for their competition team work, and two credits for work as directors.
