Compete in the Health Law Moot Court Competition

The team selection process for the Fall 2011 National Health Law Moot Court Competition will begin April 11th.  One team of two or three students will be selected.  Students who apply must be willing to make a substantial time commitment during the Fall of 2011.

Team members can earn up two credit hours for writing the brief and for participating in the Competition, and the experience may be used to fulfill the law school’s skills requirement. 

The Competition emphasizes health law, but the problem often involves constitutional, procedural and/or statutory interpretation issues.  The Competition problem generally is available by mid-August, and the brief is due around the end of September. The Competition generally is scheduled for the first or second weekend in November, and is held at Southern Illinois University School of Law in Carbondale Illinois. To apply, please submit an application packet to the Moot Court Board Office by April 15th at 12:00PM.   Your packet must include an application form, a recent resume, a letter explaining why you are interested in being on the team, and a writing sample providing evidence of legal analysis and writing skills. Application forms are available electronically (please email Jennifer Monarch at jennifer.monarch@gmail.com) and in print (see the Moot Court Board Office).  Additionally, Professor Jordan will interview candidates either during or after the exam period.  If you have any other questions, contact Jennifer Monarch at jennifer.monarch@gmail.com
