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 two possible dates for the 2017 Moot Court Competition are May 1st - May 2nd, 2017 or May 4th - May 5th, 2017. Once confirmed, the official dates will be posted.
