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.
