Each fall semester, a majority of the law school’s second year students participate in Appellate Advocacy (commonly called “Moot Court”) as an elective, attending lectures on appellate skills and participating in a series of practice oral arguments. The course in the fall culminates in the law school’s annual Intraschool Moot Court Competition, in which the students participate in appellate arguments which are judged and critiqued by dozens of local attorneys and judges who volunteer their time. Students who continue Appellate Advocacy in the spring semester focus their attention on appellate brief writing. The top students each year are selected to participate in the law school's annual Neumiller Competition, the final round of the law school’s Moot Court Competition, which takes place each year during the UC Davis Picnic Day celebration.

Meet the UC Davis Moot Court Honors Board for the 2014 – 2015 school year. The Board is comprised of an outstanding group of third-year law students who previously excelled in the Appellate Advocacy class, as well as both the intraschool and outside competitions.  The Board organizes and conducts the intraschool competition, competes in national, interscholastic moot court competitions, and provides general support to King Hall’s Appellate Advocacy program. For more details on who they are and what they do, check out the Board Member and Chair Descriptions pages!
