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.
Note: The relevant legal authorities have been added to the case packet. Please see page 9.
If your brief qualifies for oral argument, we will invite you to participate in one of the DCA competitions which will be held in early April. Finalists of the DCA competitions may also be invited to participate in the semi final rounds to be held in Tallahassee. The final round of the 2013 Florida High School Moot Court Competition will also be held in Tallahassee.
All questions regarding the case materials must be submitted in writing to The Florida Law Related Education Association, Inc. Please submit your questions via fax at the number listed below or via the internet using the Question Submission Form on this page.
