The Moot Court competition simulates arguments at the Illinois Supreme Court level. During the competition, teams of attorneys argue their case before a panel of student justices and legal professionals. Success within this competition is determined by knowledge of the case fact, presentation skills, legal forensic skills, and logical arguments. In addition to oral arguments, student attorneys will have the opportunity to write a legal brief on the case fact pattern and submit them for comments by legal professionals. This simulation will help pre-law students with preparing for professional school by helping them understand the process of legal proceedings and allowing for them to attain legal skills, including but not limited to case analysis, synthesis of cogent arguments, advocating for a client, and writing and speaking effectively.
Please direct all questions to the Chief Justice.
