Honors Moot Court – External

Catalog No.: 396

Course Description:

The School of Law enters student teams in a number of inter-school, or external, moot court competitions. These are hosted by law schools and other organizations around the country and internationally in various subjects (Constitutional law, criminal procedure, copyright, trademark, environmental law, international law, etc.). Many of the teams are selected, and problems distributed late in the fall semester, with briefs due and oral arguments held during the spring semester. Others are held during the fall semester, and require team selections earlier in the school year, or over the preceding summer. Eligibility to participate and receive credit therefore is limited and is based on application and demonstration of ability. Students may opt to earn 2 units of credit for their full, good-faith participation in the competition, awarded at the discretion of the faculty member. Graded Credit/No Credit.
If High Tech in nature, this course will then apply to the High Tech Law Certificate
