Competition: Aba National Appellate Advocacy Moot Court

1-2 Unit(s)

In the ABA National Appellate Advocacy Competition (NAAC), students develop written and oral advocacy skills by participating in a hypothetical appeal to the United States Supreme Court. A team of 2-3 students will write a brief as either respondent or petitioner and then present oral argument on behalf of 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. Team members receive 2 units in the spring semester. If there is an alternate team member, the alternate receives 1 unit 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).
