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 February 1; thirty-two competitors will be invited back to compete in the elimination rounds on February 2; and four finalists will square off before a panel of practicing judges in the afternoon on February 2, in the Stephen S. Weinstein Ceremonial Moot Courtroom.

For information about the 2014 Competition, please email the Competition Directors, Brenna Nelinson and Dan Amodeo, at firstyearcompdirectors@gmail.com.
