National Moot Court Team Tryouts

Try-outs for the 2008-09 National Moot Court Team will be held on Thursday and Friday, April 17th and 18th. To compete, you must submit a brief to Professor Marcosson by Friday, April 11th, and be prepared to perform an oral argument of that brief on either the 17th or the 18th (a sign-up sheet with times will be posted on Prof. Marcosson's office door, Room 254). All returning students are eligible for the team -- you will be eligible for two hours of academic credit and have a great time representing the law school at the regional competition in Richmond, VA., next fall (and -- we hope -- the national finals in New York in January 2009). If you have any questions, see Prof. Marcosson or e-mail him at smarcosson@louisville.edu.

Moot Court Board Member Sign Ups

MCB Members, After spring break the first year students will need to practice their oral arguments for the First Year Oral Arguments on March 29.  ALL MCB members need to sign up for at least two practice times.  This is not optional.  The practice schedule will be posted at 7:30 Monday night on the MCB office door in the student lobby.  Sign up for a time before spring break.  There are times through out the week to sign up for so it should be relatively easy to find the right one for your personal schedule.  The quicker you sign up the more options you will have.  Thank You, Wade Yeoman
