Alvina Reckman-Myers First Year Moot Court Competition

January 20-21

9:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Alvina Reckman-Myers First-Year Competition is designed to give first-year law students the opportunity to practice their appellate advocacy skills and gain valuable advice to improve their skills from the experienced alumni, legal practitioners, and members of the bench who judge the competition. This two-day competition exposes first-year students to the field of appellate litigation by assigning each participant to argue one side of a fictitious case which has been modeled after a case pending before the United States Supreme Court. The competition culminates with a final round in WCL's ceremonial courtroom, where venerable jurists and a full gallery help create an authentic courtroom atmosphere.
