Pace Law School Grand Moot Competition

This moot involves a competition of sixteen students selected by the faculty to participate in an intra-law school moot court. The problem for this moot involves an issue within the jurisdiction of the federal courts. Students selected for this competition will be enrolled in the spring semester Appellate Advocacy Course, in which the subject matter of the Moot will be researched and argued. Students receive 2 credits for their participation in the Grand Moot Competition/Appellate Advocacy Course in Law 849 and do not need to do any work prior to the spring semester course. In that course, students draft an appellate brief and argue in competitive rounds in late February through March. Two or three of the four finalists will be selected to represent the Law School in the National Moot Court Competition in the prior fall semester. The spring semester AAA/Grand Moot Course is taught by Adjunct Professor John Fullerton, a senior associate with the New York City firm of Proskauer Rose.
