Competition: Traynor Moot Court
The Roger J. Traynor California Moot Court Competition is a prestigious interscholastic moot court competition open to California law schools. The competition is designed to provide students with a learning experience that reflects contemporary appellate practice in California, and it uses an edited record from an actual California Court of Appeal case. A team of two or three students will prepare and submit an appellate brief representing one side, and present oral arguments representing both sides. Enrollment in this course is limited to members of the Moot Court Board. Students may not enroll without permission from the Director of the Legal Writing & Research program. Students receive 2 units in the spring semester. Subject to certification, students selected to participate in the competition may receive credit toward completion of the Upper-Division Writing Requirement (practice-based).
