INTERNATIONAL MOOTS 2

COURSE DESCRIPTION

International Moots 2 is the second component in the International Moots program. Whereas students in International Moots were taught the fundamentals in research, writing, and appellate advocacy, students who excel in the selection round for International Moots 1 will be applying the said skills either in regional moot competitions, or in higher-tier international competitions such as the Jessup Moot in Washington DC and the two Vis moots. Each moot team will be closely supervised by at least one coach who will have the relevant experience and qualifications in preparing the team for the memorial and oral rounds. For most of the regional and international moot competitions, teams will be expected to produce at least one substantial memorial, produced progressively over a minimum of 4 coach-vetted drafts; in some competitions, there are national qualification rounds for the oral rounds. After the memorials have been submitted, teams will undergo at least a dozen practice rounds. Unless there are exceptional circumstances, students must have taken International Moots 1 to be considered for International Moots 2.

 

NOTE: This course is by application only.
