Moot Court Competitions
In designing your academic program, you should seriously consider participating in the interscholastic moot court competitions. Students selected for these teams receive three academic credits for their satisfactory completion of a moot court competition. In addition, the Law School, through the generosity of a former member of the National Moot Court Team, gives three cash prizes (the Daniel Webster Awards) for the best brief, the best oralist, and the best advocate based on performance in the intramural competition for the moot court teams.
As their names suggest, the AAJ Trial Intramural Competition involves litigation, Mediation Moot Court involves alternative dispute resolution, Negotiation Competition involves settlement discussions, while the others are in the nature of appellate argument.
