Moot Court

The CSU College of Law Moot Court program is an organization designed to provide students the opportunity to develop, refine, and showcase brief-writing and appellate advocacy skills. All students are eligible to compete for a position on the team at the end of their first year by participating in a written and oral tryout process. The written portion involves drafting a memo based on a closed universe of facts and law. The oral portion requires students to create and perform an eight-minute oral argument for a theoretical issue on appeal. Once a member of the team, students compete in interscholastic competitions against other teams from across the nation. The award-winning CSU College of Law Moot Court team provides students the unique opportunity to obtain and develop real-world advocacy skills, both written and oral, while still in law school. Team members benefit from the advice and guidance of experienced alumni, faculty, and practitioners.
