Moot Court Honors Program

Welcome to the Moot Court Honors Program

Ranked #17 in the Nation for Moot Court*

Moot Court is the simulation of appellate argument and is an excellent opportunity for law students to develop written and oral advocacy skills, compete with students from law schools across the nation, and meet practitioners and jurists in their chosen field of law. The John Marshall Law School has a highly respected program which has received national recognition.

Students have the ability to participate in the Moot Court program in many ways. Every fall and spring semester the Moot Court Program runs the intra-scholastic Herzog Competition, giving students the opportunity to compete, bailiff, write a bench brief, or act as a teaching assistant. John Marshall also sends about 30 teams to different competitions each year, in a variety of legal topics. Additionally, the Board and Council run the annual 1L Moot Court Competition.

The Moot Court office is located in Room 604. For further information on any of the opportunities discussed above, as well as information on how to get involved, please see the links at the top of the page as well as our programs calendar below.
