Join the Moot Court Board!
The Omar Megahed Competition
7pm, Thursday, October 23, Room 5240
Each fall, second-year students can compete in an intramural appellate advocacy competition in which competitors prepare and present oral arguments from a pre-written brief. Depending on the number of competitors, between two and four finalists are invited to join the Moot Court Board. The winner of the Omar Megahed Competition competes in the competition of winner’s choice (1^st pick!) in the 3L year. This informational meeting will tell you everything you need to know to prepare for the competition.
Omar Megahed took his Moot Court Board team to win the Chicago Bar National Moot Court Competition in 1995. His spirit of excellence is embodied in this competition.
