Participation in moot court and mock trial competition affords a unique opportunity to develop persuasive writing, research, and oral advocacy skills. As such, it is highly valued by law firms and other organizations that employ attorneys. The Moot Court Board at the University of Tennessee College of Law is comprised of second and third year students who have demonstrated excellence in trial and appellate advocacy. The Board sponsors two annual intramural competitions: The Ray H. Jenkins Trial Competition and the Advocates’ Prize Moot Court Competition. The Board also coordinates several competitive traveling teams. Last year, teams from the College of Law competed in eleven different inter-collegiate competitions.
