Lynn Pinker Cox & Hurst Moot Court Competition

About the Competition


The Lynn Pinker Cox & Hurst Moot Court Competition preliminary rounds will be the afternoon of March 30th 2019 and the final round will be in the early afternoon of April 2nd 2019. The final round will be judged by the Honorable Karen Scholer, the Honorable Barbara Lynn, and the Honorable Jane Boyle.

This competition contains a brief-writing component. The brief is due March 20th by 11:59 PM. Failure to submit a brief by this time will disqualify a team from oral argument.

Each team must consist of at least two competitors. If a team would like to utilize an additional (third) student as a brief writer, they are welcome to do so but this individual may not speak at the competition. Each team may choose the side of the argument it writes its brief on. Although each team will brief only one side, all teams will argue both sides before the Court.

Sign-ups will go live Wednesday, February 27 at 8:30 AM and will close March 8 at 5:30 PM.
