National Professional Responsibility Moot Court Competition
The Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law Moot Court Board is pleased to announce that the 2nd Annual National Professional Responsibility Moot Court Competition will be held on March 15-16, 2013, in Indianapolis, Indiana.
This two-day competition is open to all ABA-accredited law schools throughout the United States and will focus on a question of professional responsibility.
Legal and judicial ethics, professional regulation, professionalism, and client protection pertain to every practitioner, no matter what legal field. The National Professional Responsibility Moot Court Competition will offer students an outstanding opportunity to engage in advocacy on cutting edge professional responsibility concerns. The moot will test skills in appellate brief writing and oral advocacy on two specific issues drawn from real opinions, providing experience in interpreting professional responsibility standards and scholarly resources first hand.
Oral arguments will begin on Friday, March 15 and conclude on Saturday, March 16. All rounds of the competition will take place at Inlow Hall at 530 W. New York St., Indianapolis, IN, 46202.
2013 National Professional Responsibility Moot Court Competition Problem:
- Question: Can teams use cases cited within a case listed in the case appendices? For example, Alexander v. Cahill cites In re RMJ (which is NOT in the listed appendix), can teams use In re RMJcase even though it is not listed in the appendix?
- Response: The rules permit using cases cited within those listed in the appendices. In the above example, the rules allow for teams to use the In re RMJ or any other case that is cited within a case listed in the appendices.
