Competitions

Each year, the Wake Forest Moot Court Board administers two intramural competitions: the George K. Walker Moot Court Competition, open to all 1L students, and the Edwin M. Stanley Moot Court Competition, open to all 2L and 3L students. Competitors research and brief one side of a hypothetical problem and then deliver a series of oral arguments before panels of judges. Distinguished federal and state judges preside over the semifinal and final rounds of each competition.  Students become members of the Moot Court Board through their performances in these intramural competitions.

In addition, members of the Moot Court Board have the opportunity to travel to other law schools to compete in interscholastic moot court competitions against students from all over the country. In addition to offering Moot Court members the opportunity to enhance appellate advocacy skills, these competitions allow students to explore specific areas of the law, test themselves against the skills of students at other law schools, and win accolades.
