The Sixth Annual National High School Moot Court Competition

April 1 - 2

9:00 am - 5:00 pm

High school students from across the country will travel to WCL to compete in this 2-day event. Pairs of students will present 12-minute appellate arguments representing either the petitioner or respondent in a fictitious Fourth Amendment problem. During the presentation, students will be interrupted by members of a 3-judge panel to clarify legal points and defend their positions. Students will be judged on their knowledge of the facts and relevant law, ability to respond to questions, poise and presentation. In the past, students from Alaska, North Carolina, Massachusetts, New York, California, Virginia, Oregon and other states have participated in this exciting competition.
