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.
