Moot Court

Moot Court focuses on the appellate court process and is designed to provide students the opportunity to present a simulated oral argument and respond to questions posed by a panel of volunteer judges. Arguments are evaluated on the application of the law to the facts of the case. Students gain experience in legal writing by composing a legal brief that is scored by volunteer attorneys. By focusing on the application of Constitutional law to current legal issues, students strengthen critical thinking skills in relation to the law and the judicial system. The Ohio Moot Court Competition is held in Columbus, Ohio.
