About the Competition
The Alvina Reckman-Myers First Year Moot Court Competition gives first year students the opportunity to test their appellate oral advocacy skills in a competitive environment while receiving substantive feedback from Moot Court Honor Society members. The Competition prepares first year students for the Moot Court Spring Qualifying Tournament and the Legal Rhetoric spring appellate argument. Two preliminary rounds will take place on January 28; thirty-two competitors will be invited back to compete in the elimination rounds on January 29; and four finalists will square off before a panel of practicing judges in the afternoon on January 29, in the Stephen S. Weinstein Ceremonial Moot Courtroom.
For information about the 2011 Competition, please email the Competition Directors, Courtney Moran and Rafael Roberti, at email@example.com.
