Moot Court Honor Society

The Moot Court Honor Society is the Law School’s only co-curricular appellate advocacy honors program. Our members sharpen their written and oral advocacy skills, argue cutting-edge legal issues and compete in a range of internal and external competitions. Students participating in the Moot Court Honor Society regularly engage with legal profession leaders, including celebrated St. John's alumni and state and federal judges. They also build relationships with future colleagues and mentors.

In 2015-2016, the Moot Court Honor Society had a strong year in external competition.

Highlights of our season include:

One Championship: The Elaine Jackson Stack Moot Court Competition

 • One Final Round: William B Spong Invitational Moot Court Tournament at William & Mary School of Law

Three Semi and Quarterfinal Rounds: Leroy R. Hassell, Sr. National Constitutional Law Moot Court Competition, John J. Gibbons National Criminal Procedure Moot Court Competition; Irving R. Kaufman Memorial Moot Court Competition

One Best Brief Award:  The Elaine Jackson Stack Moot Court Competition

One Outstanding Oralist Award: University of Houston Law Center’s Andrews Kurth Moot Court Championship
