Barry University Moot Court Board is an invitational organization composed of upper-class students selected on the basis of academic achievement and oral advocacy skills. Membership on the Board is designed to strengthen the skills needed for trial and appellate brief writing and oral advocacy. Members of the Moot Court Board also work with first-year Legal Writing students in preparation for their oral arguments, and prepare an intra-school competition for new applicants to the Board. Members receive credit for participation in Board activities and competitions.
Members have competed and won praise in inter-school competitions open to law students from all over the United States. The Board has also sponsored a Law Day intra-school demonstration for members of the Bar and the general public, and hopes to become involved in local public school programs in oral advocacy.
