The Florida Moot Court Team is a prestigious co-curricular organization at the University of Florida Levin College of Law. Founded in 1961, the team’s mission is to promote excellence in appellate advocacy.
Throughout its rich history, the team has received numerous state and national awards. Two- and three-member teams travel to over a dozen competitions throughout the United States each academic year.
At the end of each summer, the team holds a try-out competition for those students interesting in joining the team, who are entering their third semester. The competition requires students to write an appellate brief and then present two oral arguments before a panel of student and faculty judges. To be eligible to try out, students must have completed Appellate Advocacy and be in good academic standing.
The top four students compete in the annual Final Four Competition held at the College of Law, which is generously sponsored by the Orlando law firm of Zimmerman, Kiser & Sutcliffe, P.A.
