Sherman Minton Moot Court

The Sherman Minton Moot Court Competition is a student-run program in written and oral appellate advocacy. The majority of the second-year class participates in this annual competition, which is also open to third-year students who have not previously competed owing to study abroad or joint-degree programs.

If you have questions about the competition or need any further details, please contact the Advocacy Board at lawmoot@indiana.edu. You may also directly contact Lauren Hodge, Chief Justice, at lnhodge@Indiana.edu.
