The Cleveland-Marshall 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 submitting their final Legal Writing course paper. Submissions are reviewed anonymously by the Moot Court Board of Governors, and selected students then participate in an intramural competition. Second year students also have an opportunity to compete in an intramural competition to join the team after completion of the Advanced Brief Writing course. Once a member of the team, students compete in interscholastic competitions against other teams from across the nation. The award-winning Cleveland-Marshall 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.
