Florida Moot Court Competition: This two-part program offers a unique opportunity to learn about the appellate process. Students write briefs and submit for evaluation. Then if selected, students present oral arguments before an appellate judging panel using a fictitious constitutional case. The final round is held at the Florida Supreme Court.
The Florida Law Related Education Association, Inc. receives assistance from the Appellate Practice Section of The Florida Bar to implement this statewide initiative.
The 2016 case and corresponding due dates will be released soon! In the interim, review the rules from last year and review prior oral argument videos to prepare for this year's program.
The following links should be downloaded as part of the case materials for each year of competition. Please be sure to review these resources.
