Moot Court Honors Program

The Moot Court Honors Program is an intramural competition open to second and third year law students. The Moot Court Honors Program is dedicated to promoting appellate advocacy by UCLA Law students, fostering intramural competition, and supporting and promoting the UCLA School of Law through external competition. Students brief and argue a case created especially for the competition by members of the Moot Court Executive Board. The focus is on appellate advocacy, and the judges consist primarily of local members of the bench and bar. Competitors receive scores based 50% on their brief and 50% on their oral scores. Based upon evaluations from these judges, advocates with cumulative scores placing them among the top 40% of all advocates participating in the Fall and Spring competitions become members of the Moot Court Honors Program. The top four advocates from each side of the Spring Honors Competition (eight total) are chosen to argue in the Roscoe Pound Semi-Finals. The two best oral advocates from each side (four total) go on to argue the case before three of the nation's most distinguished jurists in the annual Roscoe Pound Tournament. The top twelve students who compete in both the Fall and Spring competition are named Distinguished Advocates. The top nineteen students who compete in both the Fall and Spring are eligible for various national competitions.?
