Distinguished Jurist Moot Court Competition
This annual competition runs concurrently on both campuses with the Final Round pairing the finalists from the Delaware campus against the finalists from the Harrisburg campus. The competition focuses on oral and written advocacy skills at the appellate level.  All 2RD, 2ED, 3RD, 3ED and 4ED students are eligible to compete (except those students who have been precluded from Moot Court competitions in the past). Finalists in the competition are eligible for membership in the Moot Court Honor Society and must have a cumulative GPA of 2.7 or greater at the time membership is offered. All competitors are required to compete in teams of two individuals and a written brief is required. Everyone will compete in the preliminary rounds. Only those participants that advance will compete in the subsequent round. Competition sign up obligates you to compete.
