The 2016 Judson Falknor Appellate Advocacy Competition was a big success. Participants wrote a brief and presented oral arguments with a teammate, advancing past the preliminary rounds based on accumulated points. All participants received points for use in application to the Moot Court Honor Board, and the top 2L competitors will be invited to the National Team that competes annually in New York. Participants could also receive up to two academic credits for participating.
