Appellate Competition Intensive is a one-credit crash course in the fundamentals of appellate writing and oral argument. This class is designed for members of moot court teams who are not enrolled in the full 3-unit Appellate Advocacy class. The aim of this class is to give students the essential tools of appellate practice, with an emphasis on effective writing. By the end of this class, students will be able to competently and confidently address the problems presented in moot court competitions and in real appellate practice. These skills include reviewing an appellate record, crafting sections of an appellate brief, and outlining and presenting a compelling oral argument.
