Interscholastic Moot Court Teams

UIC Law has approximately 20 teams, which compete nationally and internationally during both the fall and spring semesters. Students are eligible to try out for a team after completing the Herzog Competition. Tryouts are normally held in November for spring semester competitions and in April for fall competitions. To prepare for the tryout students need to fill out a questionnaire, list competition preferences, and attach a resume. The tryout consists of a five-minute oral argument, often a portion of the Herzog argument, and a five-minute interview. If the student has already competed on a team, the tryout consists only of a five-minute interview. Professor Joanne Hodge, the Chief Justice of the Moot Court Board, and the Executive Justice of the Moot Court Board are on the selections committee. If selected for a team, students may receive up to two hours of graded credit for their participation.

We welcome evening students and have successfully arranged flexible tryout and practice schedules for them.
