Intramural Moot Court Competition
Each fall, the Moot Court Board invites rising 2L and 3L students at Elon Law to compete in the Intramural Moot Court Competition. This competition provides students an excellent opportunity to practice and sharpen the research, writing and oral advocacy skills they learned during the first year. In addition, up to 20 of the top competitors in this annual competition are invited to join the Moot Court Board and to participate in the Board’s activities, which include sponsoring the intramural competition, hosting the Billings, Exum & Frye National Moot Court Competition, and fielding our own teams in competitions across the country. Most years, one quarter to one half of 2L students compete in the intramural competition.
The fall 2015 competition will take place on September 21 and 24, and October 1. Lawyers and judges available to volunteer as judges for the Intramural Moot Court Competition should complete the Judge Volunteer Form available here. We appreciate the service of the distinguished judges and attorneys who volunteer their time in support of this competition. Questions about Intramural Moot Court Competition or the Moot Court Program may be directed to Associate Dean Woodlief at firstname.lastname@example.org.
