The Moot Court Honor Society’s annual Spring Qualifying Tournament (“SQT”) is the competition in which students compete for available positions on the inter-school moot court team, also known as the Moot Court Honor Society. In order to participate, students must research and prepare their own briefs, as well as plan and present oral arguments on a model case chosen by the Directors.

This year's competition will take place on February 26, 2011. Registration will take place in the lobby of the Washington College of Law from January 31st through February 4th.
