WTO Moot Court Team Tryouts
HLS Administrative Updates 2013-09-30
Sign up now for the World Trade Organization (WTO) moot court, the only international competition focused specifically on appellate-level WTO litigation. The North American regional round takes place in March in Washington D.C., and the international round will take place in Geneva after exams in May. Travel expenses are heavily subsidized. We will be selecting a total of 4 people to join the HLS team this year. 1Ls, 2Ls, 3Ls, and LLMs are all welcome to tryout. Each team member will have the opportunity to engage in oral argument in front of premier scholars and practitioners of international trade law. Last year’s team won first place in the North American rounds and competed in Geneva. Tryouts are scheduled for Monday September 30 and Tuesday October 1. If you are unable to audition on these dates, please contact the team coaches. For the tryout, please prepare a 2-5 minute argument for the Complainant Avalon, based on a WTO Moot Court case from a previous year (available at https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3hduxVh… and https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3hduxVh…). Please email Colette and Derrick a writing sample and a one-page CV at least 12 hours before your tryout. To sign up, fill out the doodle poll at http://doodle.com/uk9htcm69cee5iih .
