Emory Law Moot Court Society

Emory Moot Court Society is a competitive, student-run organization that provides experiential opportunities to develop oral advocacy and brief-writing skills. Emory Law students organize and host the annual Civil Rights and Liberties Moot Court Competition, held at Emory Law in the fall semester. This year's competition will be held on October 16-18, 2020.


Membership in Emory Moot Court Society is open to all full-time students, properly enrolled in Emory Law with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.35 and who satisfy the requirements of the membership listed below. Students enrolled in any joint JD degree program may be eligible for membership, provided that all other eligibility requirements are met. First-year students participate in the Stange 1L Competition each spring for the opportunity to gain membership in the society.

Moot Court Society is comprised of 2L, 3L, and AJD members. All members must successfully compete in one intraschool competition and one interschool competition. On the basis of their brief-writing and oral advocacy scores in an intraschool competition, competitors will be placed on one of our competition teams, which travel to and compete in various interschool moot court competitions around the country.

Faculty policy states other students and student organizations may not use the Emory name in connection with a publication or interschool competition team without the consent of the Dean's office. Emory Law maintains an active interest in any function held on or off campus in which the name of Emory University School of Law is used.
