Competition will remain online
Mitchell Hamline School of Law, in collaboration with the University of Minnesota Law School, will host the William E. McGee National Civil Rights Moot Court Competition.
We are committed to providing an outstanding experience for our student competitors. Student competitors and volunteer judges will meet in a Zoom courtroom for the arguments. A volunteer “bailiff” will be in the Zoom room ready to help with any tech-related questions. Each student team will participate in two preliminary rounds of oral argument. In each round, students will argue for approximately an hour, and will then be invited to break-out rooms while judges deliberate. Following the deliberations, judges will offer constructive feedback on the students’ performance. The top four teams will advance to the semifinal rounds on Saturday, and the winning teams from the semifinal rounds will compete in the championship round Saturday afternoon.
Mitchell Hamline School of Law is pleased to invite your school to participate in the 2022-23 William E. McGee National Civil Rights Moot Court Competition.
We are finalizing our research regarding the case that will be selected to be this year’s topic.
