Sign Up for the Pirtle Washer Oral Advocacy Competition!

If you are a 2L or 3L interested in oral advocacy, the Moot Court Board encourages you to sign up for the Pirtle-Washer Oral Advocacy competition. The competition will be held at the Hall of Justice on October 19 and the final rounds will be held in the Allen Courtroom on October 26. This competition is in its 42nd year at the Brandeis School of Law and past champions include Justice Lisabeth Hughes Abramson and Judge Ann Bailey Smith. Winners are rewarded with a $1000 prize, second place will receive $500, and third and fourth places will receive $250 each.

An interest session will be held on September 25 at 12:10 in room 175. If you are unable to attend, you will need to schedule an individual meeting with VP of Internal Affairs, Jamie Hafley. In either case, you must sign up and provide contact information via a sign-up sheet posted on the Moot Court Board office door (Rm. 183). It will be posted from Sept. 19-Sept. 24 at noon. If you have questions, or you would like to schedule a meeting, please email Jamie Hafley at or call/text him at (502) 759-2962. Thank you!
