Moot Court

Georgia State Law’s Trademark Moot Court team of Phil Parham (J.D. ’15), Patricia Uceda (J.D. ’15), Eric Connelly (J.D. ’14) and Matthew Goings (J.D. ’15), placed third in the 2014 International Trademark Association’s Saul Lefkowitz Southeast Regional Competition, which addresses issues in U.S. trademark and unfair competition law.

Participating in Moot Court is an ideal way to further your written and oral advocacy skills. Each year, we send Georgia State Law teams to intercollegiate competitions that focus on different areas of law. Every team prepares a persuasive brief, arguing either for the petitioner or respondent in a hypothetical case on appeal. The group then travels to the host city to orally argue its case before a panel of judges.

This exciting and challenging forum gives students an unparalleled opportunity to engage facts, law and policy. Georgia State Law Moot Court teams have an excellent record in national competitions. Graduates of the program frequently go on to become distinguished litigators and district attorneys.

Mission: To develop each member’s potential in written and oral advocacy, represent Georgia State Law successfully in various Moot Court competitions and enhance each individual member’s educational experience in law school.
