APPLY: January Moot Court!
Moot Court is a challenging one credit Intersession course that simulates the appellate court setting. Students become knowledgeable about existing legal controversies, prepare legal arguments, and present a case before a mock judicial panel. By learning to read cases and make oral arguments, students gain insight into court-based decision making, as well as the role of lawyers and judges within the process.
When: The class will meet for 6 sessions: January 5, 7, 12, 14, 19, 21 at 6:15-8:45 p.m. Final arguments (for which you must be present) will be held Monday 1/25 and Tuesday 1/26, also in the evening at the NYC law firm Cravath, Swaine & Moore.
Who: Registration for the course is by permission only from the Pre-Law Advising Office. Participation is capped at 12 students, and is competitive. Your chosen major is not important. What is important is that you are eager to study the art of argument.
