Welcome to the CBA Moot Court Competition

Registration for the 2019 Chicago Bar Association Moot Court Competition is now open. 



For 36 years, the Moot Court Committee of the Young Lawyers Section of The Chicago Bar Association ("CBA") has hosted an Annual Moot Court Competition. The Competition takes place in November of each calendar year. Participants from ABA-accredited law schools from around the country have the opportunity to hone their research, writing, and oral advocacy skills along with approximately 30 other teams. CBA members serve as volunteer brief graders and oral argument judges to give participants a real taste of courtroom practice.

If you are faculty member or law student from ABA-accredited law school that is interested in being added to our mailing list for the Competition, please contact mootcourt@chicagobar.org
