Competitions

Legal Writing Competitions

Students are encouraged to enter papers in any of the dozens of legal writing competitions sponsored annually by the American Bar Association (ABA), other professional associations, law schools and law firms. Academic Success maintains an updated list of current and annual contests.

Moot Court, Mock Trial, and Dispute Resolution Competitions

The college’s moot court and mock trial competitions are run by the Board of Student Advocates (BSA), a student organization. Negotiation and mediation competitions are run by Law Students for Appropriate Dispute Resolution.

Appellate Advocacy Program (“McNichols”) (Law 955): A fall semester intramural moot court competition open to all 2Ls and 3Ls. BSA members write the problem, grade the briefs and organize the competition. Each participant must satisfactorily complete a major brief and make two preliminary arguments before faculty and student judges. The top 16 participants based on brief and oral argument scores advance to elimination rounds judged by attorneys and judges from around the region. Students who advance to the quarter finals can use the course to satisfy the professional skills requirement.

Appellate (Moot) Court (Law 956): Consists of participation in interscholastic moot court competitions. Students who have satisfactorily completed McNichols (Law 955) are eligible for moot court. The college generally fields teams for the National Moot Court Competition in the fall, and the National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition, and the Inter-American Human Rights Moot Court Competition in the spring. Competitions may vary depending upon resources and College priorities. Moot court participation can partially or totally fulfill the professional skills requirement.

Mock Trial (“D. Craig Lewis Trial Team”) (Law 957): An interscholastic civil trial team competition. Trial Team requires a two-year commitment and involves intensive trial training under faculty guidance. The college sends two teams of four people each to a trial competition hosted by the American Association for Justice. On each team, two 2Ls play witnesses, with two 3Ls playing the attorneys. The four 2L team members are selected early each fall in a College competition. Mock trial participation fulfills the professional skills requirement.

Negotiation & Mediation Competitions: Teams in the ABA’s interscholastic Negotiation and Representation in Mediation Competitions receive faculty guidance but no school credit. Teams are chosen through an intramural competition run by Law Students for Appropriate Dispute Resolution and judged by local lawyers and dispute resolution practitioners.
