The Paul A. McLennon, Sr., Honors Moot Court Competition

The McLennon Competition, endowed through the generosity of University of San Diego School of Law Professor Michael Devitt and his family to honor longtime family friend, attorney and naval officer, Paul A. McLennon, Sr., provides an opportunity for students to develop their brief writing and advocacy skills and to test these skills in an open, rigorous competition. Organized by the University of San Diego School of Law Appellate Moot Court Board, the competition consists of several preliminary rounds, culminating in the final round argued before a distinguished panel of judges.
