    The LaLSA Moot Court offers first-year law students the opportunity to develop brief-writing and oral advocacy skills. The winners of the LaLSA Moot Court Internal Competition will represent Columbia Law School at this year's UC Davis Asylum & Refugee Law National Moot Court Competition.

    Throughout the fall semester, our 1Ls have enthusiastically participated in a series of workshops designed to develop their oral argument skills. The LaLSA Internal Competition will help determine which 1Ls will represent Columbia Law School nationally. More importantly, it will also mark the culmination of our 1L's efforts throughout the most challenging year of their law school experience. For most, it will be the only time during their 1L year when they receive substantive feedback from a legal practitioner. Your participation will ensure that the Internal Competition is a challenging and rewarding experience for our 1Ls.

    You are invited to sign up to judge the Internal Competition for 1-hour rounds. One hour of CLE credit may be earned for each 50 minutes of participation. Only six credit hours can be earned for participation during each reporting cycle (two years). Credit will be applied towards the category of “Areas of Professional Practice.” Credit hours are not available for the attorneys’ own preparation time. You will be required to sign a CLE sign-in and sign-out sheet, which we will provide.
    The Competition will take place on the evenings of January 19th and 20th at Columbia Law School. When you sign up to judge, you will receive further information about the problem and the competition. Please contact Rebekah Rodriguez at to sign up to serve as a judge or if you have any questions.
