Opportunities to gain experience in appellate advocacy can be difficult to come by for both lawyers and law students. Fortunately, at Concordia Law, Moot court provides second and third year students a valuable opportunity to hone both their written and oral advocacy skills in this competitive field. Moot court is dedicated to fostering the development of written and oral appellate advocacy skills amongst our law student community
