Moot Court News and Highlights
Regional NAAC Moot Court Competition
Congratulations to MC Law teams who traveled to Chicago, IL to compete in the the ABA Law Student Division National Appellate Advocacy Competition (NAAC). The NAAC is a moot court competition that helps develop our students’ oral advocacy skills through appellate advocacy practice. MC Law teams participated in a hypothetical appeal to the United States Supreme Court. The competition involved writing a brief as either respondent or petitioner and then arguing the case in front of the mock court.
