Elon Law – Call for Volunteers to Judge Intramural Moot Court Competition Oral Arguments September 24 & 26

The Elon Law Moot Court Board is conducting its Fifth Annual Intramural Moot Court Competition the week of September 24.  We appreciate the GBA’s continued support of the law school and hope you will be able to assist with judging oral arguments in the competition.

Second-year students compete in the Intramural Moot Court Competition in order to gain membership on the Moot Court Board and potentially on teams that represent the law school at regional and national competitions.  Their oral argument scores are combined with their brief scores to determine their standing in the competition and, ultimately, their membership on the Board.

The argument times are noted below.  Ideally, we would ask that you volunteer for both the 6:00 and 7:30 arguments on one of these evenings; however, we will appreciate your judging any single argument session.

Monday, Sept. 24            6:00 - 7:00 p.m. (need 21 judges)
Monday, Sept. 24            7:30 - 8:30 p.m. (need 21 judges)

Wednesday, Sept. 26       6:00 - 7:00 p.m. (need 12 judges)
Wednesday, Sept. 26       7:30 - 8:30 p.m. (need 6-12 judges)

A light dinner will be provided for judges each evening of the competition beginning at 5:00 p.m.  We have allotted one hour for each argument, allowing each side 20 minutes to argue, with 20 minutes left for critique and discussion.  We will keep things on schedule, and you will be done no later than 8:30.

If you can volunteer, please review the schedule above and go online to volunteer at:  You can also email the Moot Court Board at

We would appreciate your response by Wednesday, September 19.  Thank you for your consideration of this invitation.
