PIRTLE-WASHER COMPETITION

Students, are you interested in financial rewards, oral advocacy, or the desire to represent the law school in national moot court competitions? If you answered yes to any of these, then read carefully!

The annual Pirtle-Washer Competition is an opportunity for law students to compete against one another and showcase their oral argument skills. The competition will be judged by local attorneys and judges. Briefs need not be submitted. Aside from the great networking and learning opportunity financial rewards are given for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place winners. The 1st place winner will receive $1000, the 2nd place winner will receive $750, and the 3rd and 4th place winners will each receive $500.

The first round of the competition will take place on October 22, 2011 at the Jefferson County Hall of Justice. The final round is scheduled for October 28, 2011 in the Allen Court Room at the Law School.

If you are interested in competing in the Pirtle-Washer Competition please sign up outside the Moot Court Board room or contact Eric Johnson at eljohn10@louisville.edu. There will be an informational meeting in room 175 on Wednesday, September 21, 2011 at noon.
