Harold B. Schramm Moot Court 2014
WCSU's moot court class, taught by Thomas Miller, Esq. culminated in the Harold B. Schramm Moot Court Competition ("Schramm Cup"). In the class, students were trained in the art of both oral and written legal argument. The Schramm Cup consisted of a writing competition and an oral argument competition. In the oral argument competition, students argued a fictional case in front of a mock Supreme Court, which consisted of a panel of 3 real-life attorneys as judges. The judges determined the winner of each round based on the quality of the student's legal argument as well as the quality of the student's presentation. As part of the writing competition, which was judged by a panel of 14 real-life attorneys, each student wrote a legal brief on the fictitious problem. The winner was the student with the highest combined score.
