The Rosalie E. Wahl Moot Court Competition tests brief-writing and oral argument skills in a courtroom setting. In the fall, participants research a designated legal issue. In the spring, participants are paired into teams and write a brief for either the Appellant or the Respondent in a case that presents legal issues previously researched for the fall paper. Teams then present oral arguments (on both sides of the case) to panels of judges. Six participants from the spring competition are invited to represent the college in the National Moot Court competition the following fall.
This competition is open to all students who have completed their first year. Intra-school competitors receive two pass/fail credits. Teams representing the college at the regional competition receive two credits.
