Moot Court is appellate-level oral advocacy, where competitors argue in front of mock judges of the Court of Appeals. While presenting an argument in a courtroom setting, the judges ask questions to test the competitors' knowledge of the laws and facts of the case, as well as their persuasiveness and professionalism. Unlike Mock Trial, Moot Court has no jurors or witnesses—just you, the judges, and the law!
