Intellectual Property Moot Court Competition Team (Giles Sutherland Rich American I.P. Law Association Moot Court Competition) – 7086
The I.P. Moot Court Competition Team is composed of the two to four student directors who help run the I.P. Moot Court program. Students are selected based on their overall performance during their second year as well as a written statement as to why they want to be a director and on the competition team. Unlike most moot court competition teams, each team writes two briefs — one on each side of the case. And unlike most competition teams, team members receive multiple rounds of detailed feedback on their briefs from team coaches. The team(s) 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 in early April. The team(s) also participate in the Minnesota Intellectual Property Law Association Cup Competition.
