Moot Courts

Moot Courts.

A Moot Court will be held weekly throughout the year, by the Dean, with General Terms, from time to time, for the hearing of appealed cases, by other members of the Faculty. They will be conducted as nearly as possible with the forms of an ordinary court of justice, and students will be expected to draw pleadings in the cases assigned to them, and to conduct them through all the stages of a legal or equitable suit before trying the issues in a Moot Court. The cases will be selected to illustrate the subjects studied by the class and will be made, so tar as possible, means of instruction, not only in practice and pleading, but also in the doctrines of the law. Both classes will be assigned to argue cases in these courts, but the members of the Junior Class will have a course of instruction in the preparation of written opinions and briefs before appearing in such cases.

Opportunity will also be given for the organization of Club Courts among the students, with every facility for practice in the preparation and argument of cases.
