The Rosalie Wahl Moot Court is an intra-school moot court competition designed to test participants’ writing and oral argument skills. In the winter, participants receive written materials consisting of a record, district court order, and court of appeals opinion addressing issues in civil or criminal law. Working in teams of two, participants prepare a brief to the United States Supreme Court and then compete in oral argument rounds in the spring. Presently, it is planned that the competition will be part remote and part in-person.
Students receive two credits for Rosalie Wahl Moot Court. There are two brief writing classes prior to its due date and one oral argument class prior to the competition. All classes are available remotely and hybrid students are strongly encouraged to apply.
If you are interested in applying, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by November 13th. In the text of the email, please provide a brief explanation of why you wish to join moot court. Additionally, please provide a writing sample of your own work that is no more than 10 pages.
