Moot Court & Mock Trial

members of the Moot Court and Mock Trial program at case western reserve university school of law

Our Moot Court and Mock Trial programs simulate real-life cases, giving Case Western Reserve University School of Law students the skills they need to excel in their careers. We compete nationally and internationally and have a long-standing track record of success.

We offer a variety of ways to get involved and gain this hands-on experience—through on-campus events, regional competitions, and national and international contests. You'll have the opportunity to get involved and gain experience doing everything from research to brief writing to preparing and presenting oral arguments.

"Participating in moot court is one of my fondest law school memories, particularly competing at the UNC competition. Though we faced tough opponents from other top national law schools, our diligent preparation and valuable guidance from our faculty allowed us to really enjoy the experience and have a great deal of success. To top it off, we earned the chance to argue before four federal appellate judges in the championship round—a challenging and rewarding opportunity none of us will ever forget. It was an honor to represent the law school and make a small contribution to our superb national moot court reputation."
