Fordham has developed a tradition of accomplished advocacy through the Moot Court Board, consistently fielding championship competition teams year after year. All first year students are introduced to appellate briefs and arguments as part of their Legal Writing Course. Many students follow this initial experience with voluntary participation in the Moot Court Program during their subsequent years at the school. Staff members of the Board are from students who have earned exceptionally high scores for brief writing and arguing in either of two intramural competitions.
The Moot Court Editorial Board consists of forty four third and fourth year students who have been chosen as a result of outstanding performance in previous competitions and who have completed one year as a member of the Moot Court Board.
