Join Loyola’s Moot Court Program for our annual IntraSchool Moot Court Competition and put your advocacy skills on display!

All 2L students are welcome and encouraged to participate in this prestigious annual tradition. This is an excellent opportunity to practice your oral and written advocacy skills in front of practicing attorneys and judges. The problem this year is the same as the one given in your general advocacy courses, so many of you have already done the work necessary to prepare.

Preliminary rounds will be held at the Dirksen Federal Building on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 and students advancing will compete for the title of IntraSchool champion on Saturday, February 24, 2018. Our final round will be judged by distinguished jurists including Chief Judge Diane Wood of the 7th Circuit, Judge William Bauer of the 7th Circuit, and Loyola Alumna and District Court Judge for the Northern District of Illinois, the Honorable Sara Ellis.

Following the preliminary rounds, please join our judges, fellow students, and the moot court board for a Post-Competition Celebration announcing all Quarter Finalists.  Location and time TBA.

The Moot Court Program is thrilled to announce that the period for 2L brief submissions is now open. We hope that all 2L students will join us!
