Appellate level oral advocacy. In Moot Court, you are arguing in front of mock justices of the United States Supreme Court. While you are presenting your argument, the justices are asking questions to test your knowledge of the laws, the facts of the case, your professionalism, and your persuasiveness. Unlike Mock Trial, Moot Court has no jurors or witnesses – just you, the judges, and the law!
The Moot Court Board…
Ø Holds the Melissa Mitchell Criminal Procedure Moot Court Competition
Ø Selects a charity to serve
Ø Partakes in social events to strengthen the bond between members
Ø Volunteers with the Michigan Youth In Government program by coaching Middle School and High School students on their oral arguments and debates
And much, much more!
