The Moot Court Program at Elon Law

Each fall, the Moot Court Board invites rising 2L and 3L students at Elon Law to compete in the Intramural Moot Court Competition. Afterward 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.

Through moot court experiences, Elon Law students hone the skills they learn in legal methods and advocacy courses and gain confidence in their ability to put those skills into practice as effective advocates for clients.
