The purpose of the Moot Court Bar is to conduct intramural appellate advocacy competitions: to select, promote and prepare student teams to represent the law school in regional and national appellate advocacy competitions and to help students strive for excellence in appellate advocacy and legal writing. A competition is held in the fall to select members from the second year class. Students who participate in the Second Year Competition will submit an appellate brief and argue it in front of a panel of judges. The strongest writers and oral advocates are invited to become members of the Moot Court Bar.

SALDF will be working with SQ Rescue, a local animal shelter, again this year and they are having a big adoption drive the weekend of September 12th. It will be held at the Petsmart on Two Notch Road. They need volunteers to walk the dogs and keep them hydrated as well as help passing out information, selling tshirts to raise money, and with any adoptions. Even if you can only spare an hour or two throughout the weekend, every little bit helps, and it takes some pressure off the full time volunteers. The times will be 6-9p on Friday the 12th, 11a-4p on Saturday the 13th, & 1-4p on Sunday the 15th. If you are interested or have questions, please let me know via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or Facebook.
