In the spring semester, Whittier Law School’s Center for Children’s Rights and Moot Court Honors Board co-host the only annual national moot court competition that exclusively focuses on juvenile law issues. The competition has addressed a wide range of issues that affect juveniles and attracts competitors from law schools across the nation.
Last year’s competition was a great success thanks to the wonderful work by students, faculty, and others who made it all possible. We were especially pleased to have so many teams from around the country participate.
The 18th Annual National Juvenile Law Moot Court Competition will be held on February 8-9, 2013.
The 2013 National Juvenile Law Moot Court Competition problem will explore the concept of permanency for young children in foster care, with a particular emphasis on the relationships that children form in early childhood with caregivers and siblings.
Early registration is encouraged as the number of teams will be limited to 24. Please note that only ABA Accredited Schools are eligible to compete.
