MOOT COURT

Advocacy Competition Teams

USF’s Advanced Moot Court Advocacy Competition Teams compete locally and nationally against other law schools in appellate and trial competitions each year, arguing the fine points of constitutional law, employment law, environmental law, and more. Every year approximately 40 USF law students participate on various advanced competition teams.

My experiences with the moot court competitions, trial practice class, and the narcotics prosecution clinic were invaluable. Standing up in court as a second year law student and arguing motions and assisting with a preliminary hearing—that's a very unique opportunity."
