Wabash College's Fall Moot Court competition offers Wabash students an excellent opportunity to engage in legal argumentation with training and support from fellow Wabash Alumni who are now practicing attorneys.
Students are given materials and coaching necessary for arguing a hypothetical case before a panel of judges. Competition comes from fellow students who are assigned the opposing argument. Prior legal knowledge or experience is not necessary for participation. The event is geared for undergraduates and research materials are prepared and distributed to each participant. In addition, tutoring sessions run by practicing attorneys are provided for those interested.
In short, this is a great opportunity to add to your resume, gain experience, and meet/work with Wabash Alumni.
The Fall 2013 case involves the federal constitutionality of an amendment to a state constitution that prohibits any form of affirmative action in university admissions. The state constitutional amendment is being challenged on equal protection grounds and under the political restructuring doctrine.
