The Duke Law Moot Court Board

The Moot Court Board is composed of second-year and third-year law students chosen on the basis of their performance in intramural moot court competition. The Board organizes and conducts the Law School's annual Hardt Cup and Dean's Cup intramural competitions and selects Duke Law's representatives to the Philip C. Jessup International Law competition. Members of the Board regularly compete in national interscholastic moot court competitions.
