Section Description Provided by Instructor
Academic points are in the category of Moot Court credit and are subject to a four-credit limit (see Rules for the J.D. Degree, Rule 1.13).
Students enrolled in the Fall (L6676) must also enroll in the Spring (L6776).
Third-year students, with prior service as Moot Court student editors are selected in the spring by the outgoing Student Moot Court Executive Board in consultation with the Faculty Director. In the fall term, student judges may serve as judges in the first round of the Stone Honor Competition. In addition, they are assigned to work with one or more teams of student editors and are responsible for assisting the editors by meeting and consulting with the editors about the development of their problems, and reviewing and critiquing the editors' drafts of problems, records and bench memoranda. This is done to ensure that the problems presented to the first-year students in the spring are appropriate, interesting, thoroughly researched, and well developed.
In the spring, student judges serve as judges on at least four benches for first-year arguments. In addition, they serve as bailiffs and clerks in Stone arguments. They also contribute time and judgment as required by the Executive Board in the conduct of the first-year arguments and provide assistance to and evaluation of alumni judges. They perform similar functions as needed in the conduct of the Stone moot court program.
