Moot Court is an appellate litigation simulation program in which participants argue assigned cases in front of a mock appellate court. Participants receive invaluable experience in legal research, brief writing and, of course, oral argument.
While ubiquitous in law schools, competitive Moot Court at the undergraduate level is a recent phenomenon. The University of North Texas has been on the cutting edge of this trend. Consequently, UNT consistently fields one of the best teams in the nation.
