The Appellate Moot Court Board is dedicated to fostering the development of appellate advocacy skills among our students. Members of the board receive training from professors and attorneys experienced in legal writing and appellate argument. The Moot Court Board hosts two intramural competitions each year, the Alumni Moot Court Tournament and the Paul A. McLennon, Sr., Honors Moot Court Competition. These competitions are open to second- and third-year USD law students. The National Criminal Procedure Competition attracts teams from across the United States to compete in a rigorous tournament judged by leading criminal law experts and judicial officers in San Diego. Members of the Executive Board are also selected to compete in intercollegiate national tournaments. Competing members can receive academic credit. Please visit the Appellate Moot Court Board website for more information about the program.
