The moot court program at C-M Law is one of the best in the nation. Last year's teams were successful in the regional competitions and progressed to the national finals in both the New York City Bar Association National Moot Court Competition and the National Appellate Advocacy Competition sponsored by the American Bar Association. This year the program has been selected to compete in the Moot Court National Championship Competition, an invitation-only event limited to the top 16 programs in the nation.
In addition to the competition the participating judges will provide a brief seminar on appellate advocacy.
The program is free and open to the public, and offers one free hour of Continuing Legal Education credit for members of the Ohio bar.
Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, founded in 1897 as the Cleveland Law School, was the first law school in Ohio to admit women and one of the first to admit minorities. In 1946, the Cleveland Law School merged with the John Marshall School of Law, founded in 1916, to become the Cleveland-Marshall Law School. In 1969, the Law School joined Cleveland's new public university as its sixth college and was renamed the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law of Cleveland State University. Early graduates of the College of Law laid the foundation for the legal profession in Northeast Ohio. Now in its 113th year, Cleveland-Marshall prepares promising students to be America's leaders in the 21st century in law, business, non-profit agencies and government.
