Florida Moot Court

Florida Moot Court Competition: This two-part program offers a unique opportunity to learn about the appellate process. Students write briefs and 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 final round of the 2015 Florida High School Moot Court Competition will be held Monday, May 4th and Tuesday, May 5th in Tallahassee.
