|LAW 872 - Advanced Appellate & Trial Advocacy Competition|
After completing an application and selection process, students will have an opportunity to participate in one inter-law school Moot Court Competition or Trial Advocacy Competition. Participation in such Competition will require the student to (a) conduct extensive legal research and (2a) write a formal appellate brief for moot court or (2b) prepare a trial notebook, direct and cross examinations, opening and closing statement and all evidentiary arguments for Trial Advocacy, on the issues researched with only minimal guidance and no assistance from the Faculty Advisor (interpretation should be subject to rules of individual competition). All students must complete 10 oral practice rounds before leaving for the Competition.
Upon return from the Competition, each student is required to meet with the Team Advisor to review his or her written and oral performance. Moot Court students are required to revise the brief (or his/her portion of the brief if the Advisor permits) and submit the revised version prior to the end of the exam period in which the oral component of the Competition took place. The Moot Court or Trial Advocacy faculty advisor will then determine if the student's pre Competition and post Competition efforts warrant credit.
