International Moot Court vs. Moot Court

Postby jordyb » Sat Apr 07, 2012 9:14 pm

Any opinions on which one to join? I was already accepted to International Moot Court but I am also thinking about competing for moot court over the summer and joining that instead of IMC if I am accepted

Do whichever you think you'd enjoy more. No employer is going to care, so don't base it on that. I personally wouldn't leave a potential partner hanging, but if it is early enough to drop it and you think you'd enjoy that more, go for it.

Yeah, I had a question about international moot court. I have two friends at Boalt who do it, and they've both been to Europe to compete. But I've heard nothing about it at my T-30 school. Do you have to go to an elite school to participate?

No way. My T3 school does it, and I think the team went to Sweden last week.

I would choose international for the travel opportunities alone.

That is so awesome. Our only international option is Jessup/Stetson and those competitions are in the US.
