McBaine Honors Moot Court: Final Round

Monday, February 12, 2024 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The entire Berkeley Law community is invited to attend this exciting event, hosted by the Advocacy Competitions Program.

Please join us for the prestigious James Patterson McBaine Honors Moot Court Final Round on Monday, February 12 @ 6:00 p.m. in Booth Auditorium. Doors will close promptly at 6:00 p.m., so be sure to arrive early if you want a seat. 


The James Patterson McBaine Honors Moot Court is Berkeley Law’s advanced-level appellate competition that has a rich history with program records going back to 1964! The tournament is designed to both test and hone students’ written and oral advocacy skills as they independently prepare an appellate brief and deliver at least two oral arguments. The competition is modeled after United States Supreme Court practice, with competitors representing either Petitioner appealing the lower court’s decision or Respondent opposing the appeal. Each year, McBaine participants are given a competition problem selected by student leaders and based on real appellate decisions involving cutting-edge issues of great public importance.

The round will begin promptly at 6:00pm so please plan to arrive early.
