Rhetoric Moot Court
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 legal dispute adapted from an actual case pending before the United States Supreme Court. Competition comes from fellow students who are assigned the opposing argument, and the arguments are presented to panels of judges consisting of alumni attorneys and Wabash faculty.
In short, this is a great opportunity to add to your resume, gain experience, and meet/work with Wabash Alumni.
The Fall 2015 moot court problem considers the competing claims of religious organizations and the government over the legality of requirements found in the Affordable Care Act related to insurance coverage for contraceptives. More specifically, under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, religious organizations are challenging a requirement that they either offer their employees health insurance covering certain contraceptive services or submit a form or notification declaring their religious opposition to that coverage.
