Originating in the year 2007, the University of Central Florida is the birthplace of the UCF Moot Court Team. Since then, the team has developed into an organization and a class as well. Currently ranked fourth in the nation, our team has continuously excelled at a national level.
What is Moot Court?
Moot Court is a simulated, appellate- advocacy competition in which participants argue upon a constitutional issue before a mock United States Supreme Court. Students create arguments supporting both sides of the issue from a limited number of Supreme Court jurisprudence. Competitors are then paired in teams of two arguing in front of a bench of “justices,” usually composed of real-life advocates and judges.
Moot Court fosters a community of students who share an interest in the law, allowing for the discussion of constitutional issues, and the improvement of advocacy skills through participation in regional and national invitationals and tournaments. Moot Court helps develop the necessary skills for not only law school, but many other careers by giving students the chance to perfect their critical reasoning skills, write persuasively, and engage in public speaking in a competitive setting.
