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.

The 2013-14 season was one of Moot Court’s most successful in recent years. We took first place and second best brief in Vanderbilt’s National First Amendment Competition. We had an all St. John’s final round in William and Mary’s William B. Spong Competition, resulting in a double win. We also took the second best brief award. We were finalists in the Emory Civil Rights and Liberties Moot Court Competition and won the third best brief award. We were semi-finalists in the Elaine Jackson Stack Moot Court Competition as well as the best brief winner. The APALSA-Moot Court team was the Northeast Regional Champion in the Thomas Tang Competition and won awards for both best brief and best oralist. At the National level, the team advanced to the quarterfinals and won awards for second best brief and second best oralist.
