LAWS 8472 Advocacy Competitions (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This is the companion class to the national moot court teams. Enrollment and attendance in this class is mandatory for all members of a national team. The goal of the class is to help prepare students for not only for their individual competitions but also for litigation practice. The class is divided into three parts: overview of the moot court experience, appellate written advocacy and oral advocacy. The class will meet formally during the Fall semester until Oct 15. The class will reconvene in the first half of the Spring with their team coaches for oral advocacy/moot sessions until the competitions are complete. Students should expect an "incomplete" grade until they have completed their moot court experience (February/March).
