LJA 401 Moot Court Tournament

This is an advanced and intense appellate advocacy experience. In teams of two, students develop legal arguments on a hypothetical case developed by the American Moot Court Association. Each student is responsible for both petitioner and respondent positions on an assigned constitutional issue. Over the course of the semester, students will learn Supreme Court precedent for the constitutional issues that underwrite the hypothetical case, practice oral arguments in class, and compete in a regional tournament of the AMCA. Students will be required to submit a written brief.
