sheet has been posted on the front door of the Moot Court Board room. The deadline
for signing up is Monday, September

no written requirement, as this is not a
“briefed” competition. Instead,
students compete in pairs of two in a simulated law office consultation in
which the students, acting as attorneys, are presented with a client
matter. They conduct an interview with a
person playing the role of the client, and then explain how they would proceed
further in the hypothetical situation. The
judges evaluate how the team elicited facts, advised about the relevant law, provided
options for proceeding, and assisted the client to make an informed choice. For
the tryout, each interview will last approximately 15 minutes; the actual
competition will be a 30-minute interview.
regional competition will take place February 11, 2012, at Northern Kentucky
University’s Chase College of Law in Highland Heights, Kentucky. The regional competition consists of three
qualifying rounds with each team competing indirectly against two other teams
in each round. After the qualifying rounds, the top six teams advance to
the semifinal round, culminating with the three winning teams in the final
round. The first place team from each
regional competition will advance to the National Finals on March 16-17, 2012,
in Durham, North Carolina.
3L, & 4L students are encouraged to sign-up. The team is coached by Professor Leslie
Abramson and Louisville attorney Paul Schurman.
