Each year, 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, 20 or more 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. In spring 2019, 60 Elon Law students participated in the Intramural Competition, the largest number in the school’s history.

We appreciate the service of the many Elon Law alums, and other attorneys and judges, who volunteer their time in support of this competition each year.
