Oral Argument Practice Guides
In 2015, UNC School of Law, in consultation with the North Carolina Bar Association’s Appellate Practice Section, established the North Carolina Appellate Courts Mooting Program for Practitioners. The Program provides an opportunity for attorneys with arguments upcoming in the North Carolina Supreme Court or North Carolina Court of Appeals to simulate their arguments in advance in a secure, professional atmosphere.For those attorneys wishing to practice their arguments in such a setting, the Program provides a venue in its newly remodeled Courtroom, an opportunity for the practicing attorney to bring a guest judge (or judges) of his/her choosing, an opportunity for the attorney to agree to allow members of the UNC Law Faculty with substantive expertise to sit as appellate judges, and an opportunity for the attorney to allow an upper-class law student to have prepared for the argument and to sit as one of the appellate judges. To schedule a moot session or for more information, contact Professor Andy Hessick (firstname.lastname@example.org) at UNC School of Law. Alternatively, you may contact Gregg F. Schwitzgebel III (email@example.com), the Appellate Practice Section member who worked tirelessly to create this valuable resource for practitioners.
