The Thurgood Marshall Memorial Moot Court Competition is hosted by the Younger Lawyers Division of the Federal Bar Association (FBA).
Each year, the FBA distributes case materials to the teams based on a current and developing federal issue. The materials include a mock district court order and circuit court opinion. The teams then use those materials to prepare and submit written appellate briefs and argue against other teams from around the nation.
Each team member argues and fields questions from a panel of judges for 10-15 minutes. The panel of judges often include state or federal judges, practitioners, or scholars—many of whom have also had to pivot to virtual hearings and conferences in their careers.
Participation is worth two (2) credits.
