Over 150 law schools compete in this annual competition, with regionals held during the fall semester and nationals in the spring.  Students prepare appellate briefs and oral arguments for competition at the regional level, and the top two schools from each region advance to the national competition in New York City.  The competition gives students the opportunity to hone their appellate advocacy skills by arguing before practicing attorneys and judges.
