Every year, the Paul M. Hebert Law Center hosts the Robert Lee Tullis Moot Court Competition. This competition affords second-year students the opportunity to try their hand at appellate advocacy before professionals in the legal community. The results of this competition also determine the composition of the next year’s Moot Court Board. The feedback and experience that students receive from this competition is invaluable to their professional development. In order to afford students this opportunity, we must call upon legal professionals in our community for assistance.  Accordingly, we would like to invite you to be a judge for the 2014 Robert Lee Tullis Competition. As a “judge,” we would ask you to serve for an hour-long block during which you would hear the case and provide feedback to the participants. The number of blocks served is at your convenience and discretion. Additionally, all materials you may need will be provided and beverages and light refreshments will be available.

The following are the dates for the 2014 Robert Lee Tullis Moot Court Competition:

  • October 6, 2014—Preliminary Round 1

  • October 7, 2014 – Preliminary Round 2
